Re: Tigers v Calvisano

With respect to some previous posts, I'm finding it difficult to see the point in fielding a strong side at home to Calvisano. The various first team players have played in combination before in match situations. They are professional full-time rugby players, who train together daily. It cannot, or ...

Re: Saints away - Saturday 30th November

If Saints are vulnerable, it's in the forwards, particularly the front 5. This match is our very first opportunity to put out a full strength side in the prem, apart from a couple of injuries. I would like to see us go there with a fully loaded pack. Genge, Youngs, Cole and Lavanini with either Spen...

Re: PRC Round 1 - Warriors vs Tigers

I saw enough at Sixways today to give some hope for the future. Defeat was expected if I'm honest, but effort was 100% throughout. I'm not complaining about our performance or attitude and I understand the resting of most likely first team starters in the circumstances that we face this season. The ...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 6

Didn't Clare feature large in our home defeat to Saints season before this? Seem to remember him coming on and giving our scrum a seeing to.
Difficult to see how we can do much better for a fourth choicer. Big experienced hooker with Tigers background.

Re: Tigers v Bristol - 27th April 2019

Always disappointing to receive abuse for a sincere comment in a civilised debate. I decided to watch the disallowed try at Newcastle incident again a few times. The cross kick from White was bang on the money. Hammersley was out of position and moved across stretching to make the catch. He may have...

Re: Tigers v Bristol - 27th April 2019

"It's down to very fine margins, which makes the idiocy of Ellis Genge all the harder to take. His needless barge into Hammersly, which resulted in May's second try, our fourth, being disallowed cost us 1 league point and gifted 1 to Newcastle. His "brush/barge" past Flood may have been innocuous, b...

Re: Tigers v Bristol - 27th April 2019

Nothing would surprise me about this premiership season. But, we are in a much better place now and should stay up with two winnable home games and a trip to Quins, which suddenly doesn't appear so daunting. It is not fanciful to look at where 9 points from the last 3 games would get us. Top 6? Unli...

Re: Relegation

Today's matches are of huge importance to us. Newcastle at home to Sale in particular. I can see Newcastle winning that. Worcester may get something at Bristol. There is every chance we'll end the day 5 points off the drop. We play Exeter in a fortnight, against whom our fortunes will not improve, b...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 5

Jordan Taufua is an excellent signing. I know I'm not the only one starting to get the impression that GM and co have a very clear idea of what they want in the squad both, in terms of players' ability and attitude. The return of Hamish Watson? Doesn't sound likely, but he would also fit the mould. ...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 5

Good luck to Graham Kitchener. Sorry he's leaving. A hard working and committed player who should get the game time he deserves back at Wuss.
Suppose he may have found himself behind Spencer and Green next season, so a move makes sense.
