Re: 'New' Laws

Fair, but I don't think that's a new thing is it? I see where you're coming from though.

Re: New Kit

I don't like having separate European kits for two reasons. 1. It feels like exploitation and another way of extracting more money from fans. 2. I want us wearing green, red and white whenever possible. Also I have no issue with different colours for away kits. They are SUPPOSED to be different to t...

I'd be surprised if that ship hasn't sailed now to be honest.

Re: 'New' Laws

The bad Team putting in at the scrum 'must' strike for the ball - guaranteeing a 7 on 8 push albeit briefly Actually, I'm cool with this. A return to hookers hooking. It's a lost art and the loss of this art has resulted in teams essentially having three props and focusing on just pushing. This mak...

But there ARE no quotes with regards to any possible move. That's the point.

Re: The ultimate?

No offence, but I always find those questions pretty daft since it is literally never a choice you have to make.

Re: Leicester Tigers 2017/18 Squad/Transfers/Contract thread!

This is the NZ Herald story. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news/article.cfm?c_id=4&objectid=11892221 There are no quotes, and the assumption that he can't be off seems to only be because he's contracted until 2018, which ignores the possibility of him being released from it or signing the summer a...

Re: Leicester Tigers 2017/18 Squad/Transfers/Contract thread!

WOW, from those clips DMAC looks brilliant, superb running and offloading. I have been told we are signing 2 SH players and if these clips show his full potential then Wow. We have seen clips before, generally they don't show any failings so I hope this guy really is this good! Regarding his offloa...

Re: Leicester Tigers 2017/18 Squad/Transfers/Contract thread!

Fingers crossed that this is just not another over hyped non signing, if true it will be interesting to see when he joins us and if his brother is coming with him? I suspect it will be next season and I wonder if Toomua will be off to make way ? Why would Toomua need to make way? They play differen...

Re: Leicester Tigers 2017/18 Squad/Transfers/Contract thread!

It could be. The suggestion that he would only be available for next season seems to be coming from assumption by the New Zealand press, since he was reported to have signed a two year deal in 2016. There's nothing to say we're not paying a fee or that his release has been negotiated.

Re: Leicester Tigers 2017/18 Squad/Transfers/Contract thread!

Isn't Damian Mckenzie only going to be released after the the 2017-18 super rugby season ends? Remains to be seen - but signing him is massive either way. A real coup for us. I'm led to believe it's a done deal but don't quote me. Also another unnamed winger on their way too. An international no le...

Re: Telusa Veainu!!

Much as I like Veainu at full back with the ball in hand (his ability to use space in front of him off either foot is wonderful), the downside to him there is that he's not quite so flash at the defensive element and under the high ball - think back to the opening moments of the Saints game at Frank...

Re: New Forum!

The person to whom I told to pipe down wrote an ill-informed, hostile and entitled post that was completely unwarranted. I am of the opinion that he needed to pipe down.
