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

The objective of the interview was to provide clarity amidst the media speculation. We've ended up with even more speculation and uncertainty about our marquee player. Didn't quite hit the mark. It did provide clarity. They clearly laid out the 5 players that were leaving (and I’m sure this is the ...

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

With all the comments about 5 players leaving and then "tweets" "feeds" etc trying to muddy the waters regarding JT and even Veainu I still think there is some way to go before this is finally over. Whatever happens Andrea is a very impressive CEO and certainly gives me confidence for the future. S...

Well, have to say, Veainu hijacking the interview makes him look like he has an axe to grind. Or he's just winding everybody up - just like Genge yesterday?
My guess is its both.

the club can't release them, they cannot afford to, to just release them you have to pay the full value of their contracts up in one lump sum
Expect if they find a different club that ‘breaks’ the contract, until then imagine have to pay them in full even though not training/playing.

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

Guess so, copied for those who haven't seen it. The Club’s commercial activities have felt the pandemic’s impact more than most Premiership Rugby clubs, given the size of its stadium and fan base. To date, the Club has missed out on approximately £5.0 million of revenues since it was last able to h...

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

“As well as Tuilagi, it is thought that Greg Bateman, Kyle Eastmond, Noel Reid, Jordan Taufua and Telusa Veainu missed Leicester's deadline” Can believe Eastmond, Bateman, and Reid have only been offered one year deals so less reason for them to accept new terms. If Eastmond and Reid leave then Bra...

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

Telegraph saying Manus future is uncertain. The fact no announcements have been made suggests at least some are off though that’s no surprise. I wonder if say Veianu is off does that mean the club is willing to give Manu a bit more. I suspect not. Or they might be waiting to announce them tomorrow ...

Re: One & half seasons into one.

I think it’s likely that will be moving to the global calendar for the 2020/2021 season where the move to the season starting in December will be a permanent one.

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

If Maro is coming it would explain the silence on both the 2nd row signing and kit announcement. If he was coming, I’d expect him to be the kit reveal model. We're told Tigers deals have been done and contracts have been signed. Maro has said he's 95% sure where he'll be next season which means he ...

Re: Tigers' Players in the Media

I don't think anybody is saying they wan't their money and sod the clubs, its more the fact that the way it has been done means the top level players are likely to keep very high salaries and due to academy credits young players will also be largely unaffected, meaning those middle tier players are...

Re: Tigers' Players in the Media

I think the issue isn't that they might be payed less its that the middle quality group of players (Journeymen to some) are gonna be the ones who feel the squeeze the most, we have seen it already that the Marque slot has driven wages up dramatically for the international quality players. To make m...

Re: LTTV next week - Club Doctor - Any questions?

A non-covid one from me if that’s allowed.

What do you think has been the biggest change in the last 10 years around the role of the club doctor and what do you think will be the biggest change in the next 10 years?
