Re: Ringfencing almost upon us ?

That the league will be closed up for Sarries return is weak. If anyone believes that it's best then show some bottle and do it now from the start of 20/21 with 12 teams. 13 teams is a stupidly wasted weekend for each club and also an unfair advantage when a club that has had two weeks preparation ...

Ibitoye is nowhere near Wade's ability at present.
Somewhat to be expected as he's nowhere near Wade's age or experience.

Re: Finishing this season

Just been announced that Home internationals will be completed last 2 weekends in October and there will be programme of November Internationals, New Zealand, Argentina and Tonga from memory. Likely to be without Genge, Youngs, Ford, Lavanini and Moroni for all or some of that period. Not quite. Fr...

Re: How times have changed..

Yet again, there are people wanting intent to be considered when looking at dangerous tackles etc. Sometimes the intent us obvious and sometimes it is obvious there was no intent. However there are many times you cannot be sure if there was intent if not, so how are you going to decide if there was ...

Re: Finishing this season

Some people are drawing a distinction between midweek and weekend fixtures. Personally, I do not see any particular relevance, unlike who we are playing and whether it is at home (something I think no-one else has mentioned - could be wrong). Agree about the targeting the Challenge Cup.

Re: New Kit

Ah okay. I mean that's also not correct as that is also copyrighted at the IPO, funny that it seems to be the default excuse that's gained traction even though it doesn't really make sense and is easily disprovable! I guess because it neatly moves it into "one of those things which can't be helped"...

Re: New Kit

This hoary old chestnut. Unfortunately the Intellectual Property Office search is down now so I can't link but the old club crest IS copyrighted property of the club, that is simply not true. Just going on my memory of discussions many moons ago, summed up by this post by Bill W in 2011: "This has ...

Re: New Kit

I think most of us are missing the point. Sports clubs are like banks - once you're a customer, you rarely change. Therefore all the branding etc is not aimed at selling a few more bits of merch to adults, it's aimed at getting more kids in because, once they are in, they are more often than not fa...

Re: Puzzled

Don't really see anything fishy in it. The likes of Farrell and Itoje were probably on the top salary they were ever likely to get in England. With the cuts they will still be on a good wedge and getting that secured longer term (which I take to mean minimum 3 or 4 years ) makes sense in an uncertai...

Re: New Kit

For what it's worth my 4 guesses as to reaching new demographics 1. Very Bright/Bold maybe "tiger claws ripping through" - just attract the younger demographic as opposed to the traditional fan that will be happy with an old school Stripes. Attracting younger fans with a bold kit would be cool, my ...

Re: Finishing this season

August 2012, apparently. We won 34-21 and went on to win the Premiership. Yet another silly generalisation from the poster above then... I thought the Jersey game was more recent than that but the game against Jersey was a clear illustration of our declining interest in the pre season games and als...

The Times saying that Manu in talks with Sale (which is not new), but can't see Dimes putting up with any messing about in negotiations "If you don't like it, sod off and find another club'. He does have form.

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

Oh yes signs a 2 year extension with Tigers, 5 months later is released because he isn’t in the plans. A quality player who could cover wing and 13, also had great chemistry with the players around him. Same with McAffrey, let these players go and never replaced them with like for like quality. How...
