Re: Exeter Chiefs

I think their name should be Exeter Chiefs.

Re: Steve Borthwick

Not good then! How can SB put his stamp on the team if he cant pick the players he wants?! He and Murphy will have a vision of how they want to play. Borthwick will then implement that into training sessions which he will run and then Murphy will pick the match day squad with input from Borthwick. ...

Re: Manu Tuilagi

Saw one article suggesting that Tigers might be able to induce him to stay offering him a testimonial year, to me that's complete nonsense a testimonial year is for club servants not for a bargaining chip to entice him to stay... I thought people who have done 10 years or more get a testimonial. Ma...

Re: Steve Borthwick

Borthwick and Murphy seem like chalk and cheese to me. I am not sure Murphy has the metal to be a Head Coach. I wonder how they do/will get on. Your right he never had the metal to be Head Coach that's why he was replaced by Borthenstein and then he was promoted to Director of Rugby for his ineptit...

Re: More updates needed about the players not staying

You mean you want them to update us on players confidential contract details?

Not. A. Chance. Quite rightly so.

Re: New Kit

Ok I'll answer your assumptions first shall i. - Samurai do have control over their 'end to end' supply that one one of the things thats been pushed today in the announcement of their new iconix range (don't worry you can fact check that later). - See above, freight is moving freely from the Far Ea...

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

He is from NZ and played for NZ age grade teams, so they are not that wide of the mark. It would be a poor show for Telusa to be announcing Jordan's departure from Tigers. That is Jordan's business to announce or, by agreement, the club or indeed someone else; I cannot imagine Jordan asking someone...

Nadolo tweeted about 15 minutes ago that today is his first day as a Tiger. Veainu said welcome and the reply from Nadolo was “Can’t wait to play alongside you”. Nadolo hasn’t seen the news!!

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

They were offered a 25% wage reduction for one season only and then also given the opportunity to get 50% of what they have lost, back, later down the line. That seems fair to me, yet 5 of them said no. Things like this disappoint me, especially when some of the players see what people live on in th...

“As well as Tuilagi, it is thought that Greg Bateman, Kyle Eastmond, Noel Reid, Jordan Taufua and Telusa Veainu missed Leicester's deadline” Only one of them to me would be a huge loss. 3 really wouldn't be missed. 3+1=4 What about the other one and which ones would be missed? Veainu and Taufua wou...

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

Saints added to the list of clubs managing to do this without bringing the club down and embarrassing the supporters. It’s because the media likes to talk about big clubs, not small ones. It’s more of a story that there could be a number of players leaving the country’s biggest and most successful ...

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

Would I be right in saying that the captaincy of the club, carries a salary increase, sure I heard it once when Tom Youngs was being discussed Probably. It seems everything is about money. God forbid the honour of being captain isn’t enough, they need to be paid extra on top of the very generous wa...
