Re: Thoughts & conclusions on the season.

I don’t think it helped that the good new signings... Spencer ... got himself banned ... Denton .. Got injured for a long time. Added to that Genge was off at the same time and then Bateman meant that we were shorn of of decent ball carriers for large chunks of the season. With no go forward ball th...

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

I thought I read somewhere Stevens was leaving. Is he not the current 4th choice hooker?

Re: Pat Howard

Agree about Howard and Stransky but I would throw Kronfeld in as well as a top top overseas player for us

I hope Pat returns in a more permanent way

Re: Tigers v Chiefs

I think jordon will be good. Yes he needs to learn to make outside breaks and not always come back inside but he does make breaks and breaks tackles. He needs to become more aware of players around him. I cannot understand how kitchener plays ahead of wells. I cannot understand why kerr doesn't eith...

Re: Tigers v Saints

The other major elephant in the room is the captain. Not only his captaincy or lack of it but his total inability to hit a barn door. He is a hard working industrious player in the loose and strong enough scrummager but that’s not enough. We cannot carry on squandering field position with his inabil...

Re: Tigers v Saints

The one bloke who made a difference when he came in was white. Ruck clearance, speed and accuracy of pass gave Ford more time to make the plays and gave the attack continuity. For me up until that point Jordan Olefella was just about our best player. This tells me that the youth policy is the only w...

Re: The Six Nations 2019

I don’t think the Scottish scrum was there to be munched. Nel is as good a tight head as anyone and when they brought Reid on to strengthen the scrum it was Sncler who got munched and Jones had to send Cole on to rescue the situation

Re: Ben Youngs

I think Ben Youngs is a very talented player who quite regularly plays poorly for Tigers and yet generally plays well for England. I can never make up my mind if that is coaching, the players mind set, tactics or the players around him. I find it very frustrating whatever it is. Anyway, well done to...

Re: ARE THERE ANY LAWS IN THE GAME THAT YOU WOULD CHANGE?

Im with Old Hob on this one Bring back proper rucking - as soon as the tackle is made everyone must release the ball immediately and can only play with the feet thereafter until it emerges at the back of the ruck and received by the scrum half (or acting scrum half). Yes, I agree no stamping or kick...

Re: Best Rugby Player Of All Tine

Hmm quite interesting to read my own posts from 13 years ago and I see it was my post on Bill McLaren that prompted someone to re post this . Dear old Bill I do still miss him. Current commentators would do well to listen and learn. None of them have his enthusiasm for the game I love. They are all ...

Re: Manu to Racing 92? No! - Re-signed for Tigers!!!

Good one

We just need him to stay fit and play as well for us as he has England.

Hopefully it will encourage others to stay ie Genge

Re: New Coach?

I agree it is impossible to get a team to perform consistently when vast parts of the squad is unavailable. I am not sure if Murphy is the right man in long term for the job. However one thing that is certain, the failure of this club in recent years is due to the failure to do that which was always...
