Re: Steve Borthwick

Given the preponderance of TLA's (Three Letter Acronyms), Murphy has moved up to DoR, perhaps Borthwick is PoD?

Re: Steve Borthwick

An interesting interview clip on Borthwick. He seems very serious, is that why Bondi refers to him as Prince of Darkness? Also, will be interesting to see how players in particular react to the contrast in personalities between him and Murphy. Murphy usually seems to be a chatty cheeky and friendly ...

Anyway, moving away from Manu, it seems like Gigena should be due back once he can get his visa sorted.

Leicester Tigers have welcomed outside-back David Williams to the club on loan from Nottingham Rugby.

Re: Ideas for revenue generation at Tigers

Why not have a competition for all to enter with an appropriate range of prizes for say the best 5? Could have a panel to review them and invite top 5 to the club to discuss their ideas considering longer term impact not only on finances, but wider community, fans, players, staff, environment. Might...

Re: Ideas for revenue generation at Tigers

Just a germ of an idea - would season ticket holders pay something to have their names fixed to their favourite seat in some way?

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

I know this is semantics, but I thought Murphy said in the LTTV interview a few weeks ago that we could pay up to the cap, not that we would. Given the worsening economic situation in front of them, they might in fact decide that paying up to the cap isn't financially sustainable at this moment in t...

I'm going to start a new thread once all this is officially done with, and the players are off the squad page.
You do a sterling job Mr Bull, very grateful for your efforts. At the moment it is a bit like painting the Forth Bridge, as soon as you finish it is time to start again!

Re: 31 redundancies

That is right. Obviously I want Taufua, Veainu, Tuilagi to stay, for Alemanno to sign and so on. All the staff and all of the players (including those leaving) will have to make sacrifices. What made an impact on me from the LTTV thing last night, was the realisation that those 31 being made redunda...

Didn’t get to watch the live stream so a quick question: were the rumours of an extension to the Tuesday deadline just that, rumours, so without foundation?
Extension not mentioned. Seemed clear that today was the day they wanted it all sorted by.

Sam made an excellent point. Time to thank those staff who made our enjoyment of the rugby possible. Hope to see them back at some stage.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

Whatever squabbles are going on between players and the club were inevitable as I am sure has happened at many other clubs. Whether it has been dealt with poorly by the club (the manner it was communicated) may or may not be the case. The announcement earlier today makes it as clear as it can at thi...
