Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Steve Borthwick and the Chamber of Oval Park

I remember making the trip to Llanelli in the early to mid 90s to watch Rupert Moon (the cousin of a friend of mine) play when that team were a real force... Rupert Moon played his formative rugby at Queen Mary’s Walsall and Walsall Rugby Club … I know as played against him many times at a junior l...

Re: EPCR Semi finals

Sounds like an obvious thing to say but the key to this quick ball is Gibson Park. He never gets involved in the ruck, that’s everyone else’s job, he is just there to get the ball away, and his cheat lines are sensational I think more than that is the footwork of the whole back line. It just create...

Re: EPCR Semi finals

I’m not sure how long I can watch this. Sexton moaning already and the Leinster love in in the commentary box is nauseating ! Just turned it off for that very reason. Shame - you’re missing some fabulous rugby! Maybe switch back on and turn the sound down? A win-win😏 The sun is shining at the crick...

Re: Tigers v Leinster (H) - Saturday 07th May 2022 - 5-30pm KO

I have always deplored the fact that provinces come up against clubs in European Cup games. It is not in the spirit of what it is about. Little wonder that Leinster have won it four times, with so many Irish internationals in the side. It was initially intended and still should, about clubs. Why th...

Just musing over a quiet beer or two......all went much as anticipated, sadly. The ref too.

Just how far over our salary cap would a Squad like Leinster's be if you could pull it together......25%.........50%? I suppose Sarries would know?

Just a thought

Re: Tigers v Leinster (H) - Saturday 07th May 2022 - 5-30pm KO

I'm hopeful rather than expectant. I think this game may be a bridge too far.

Leinster are the better team on paper, but, as Cloughie put it, "If you're only the better team on paper you're not the better team."

.......nervous!
