Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Episode 3 The revenge of the Contracts.

Did I imagine it or was there talk of a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ between prem clubs not to sign each others players under contract negotiations as a result of Covid? I appreciate it isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on, but clubs seem to be holding to it? (At the moment).

Re: Howard to mentor Murphy

Question. Why appoint a head coach who needs mentoring? Totally barmy imo. :smt017 :smt017 Incredibly short-sighted. Taking a longer term view that a head coach will continue to develop and improve, with a old-head alongside to support that development, is a model that works elsewhere - so why not ...

Re: Only 4 points away from 3rd.

[quote=Scuttle post_id=706125 time=<a href="tel:1546770674">1546770674</a> user_id=12205] I always thought our inability to secure bonus points last season was a material part of not making the top 4. We seemed to win small and lose big compared to other teams. So it is interesting to note that, at...

Re: I am really disappointed in the club

Why not take the initiative - buy a shirt / flag. Take it to the next home game and wait after the game to get it signed? Just like the many kids do who also want something to hang on their wall at home. Or pop along to Oval Park at a convenient time and respectfully ask the players there? There are...

Re: England v Samoa

I was planning to go to Twickenham on Saturday to see the game, but circumstances this week have overtaken my plans.

I do, therefore, have two tickets for the game if anyone would like to buy them - £50 face value. I live in the Hinckley area but work in town for local pick-up.

Many thanks

Re: Matt O'Connor

And no one mentions Manu. If he comes back fit and firing on all 12 cylinders, then we will fear no one Disagree. One man does not make a team and it was the reliance on one player, structuring the team around that one player and the fixation on stop-gap replacements for that player that was one of...

Re: Leicester Tigers 2016/17 Squad/Transfers/Contract thread

Tomorrow's Times will report that George will sign for us, with Freddie going in the opposite direction. Also that the trade is not linked to Mike Ford coming to Welford Road.

Re: Is it now time to thank Cockers?

I was going to quit this forum (I have quit the FB supporters) because of the moronic repetitive comments. However I am so heartened that I have just read a whole host of sensible comments, recognising the limitations and difficulties the club is struggling with, and the lunacy of going down the me...

Re: Just a hint of....a forward pass?

This video shows why a grid system wont work and why momentum plays a huge role. It also shows why the movement of the hands is everything:

Re: Official history book has arrived

In the good old days, season ticket holders used to get a hard back yearbook free. They were closely controlled at issue and you had to show your season ticket in order to get one. Then they went to soft back, still free to season ticket holders though and still controlled at issue. The next year t...

Re: 2014/15 Kits

The Canterbury site does indeed still show Leicester as a 'sponsored' club. I agree that the new kit will probably be on their site once released.

I seem to recall the Underwoods facing each other when Rory had moved to Bedford and Tony at Newcastle. 1998? Im sure some statto can confirm it.

Re: Have we qualified already??

In theory we could get No 1 seeding with 5 points v Ulster and Toulon/Toulouse slipping up.....

I assumed this too, Saracens and us certainly cannot be caught for a runners up spot.
