Re: Geordan Murphy leaves the club!

Actually, sudden/unhappy departures are nothing new at Tigers. In relatively recent times I can think of quite a few who have unexpectedly moved on - Peter Wheeler, Deano, John Wells, Cockers, Lewis Moody, to name a few. Now Boris, Rory Underwood and Smurph are added to the list of Tigers greats. To...

Re: Geordan Murphy leaves the club!

I'm flabbergasted at this news! Another day, another departure! If you have listened to Peter Tom and Geordan together in the LTTV interviews and hear how supportive Tom has been with the direction Smurph has been taking the Club, then it just doesn't stack up. Either that, or Tom is totally two-fac...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

Rory has been a great club man. With him now gone, and the earlier departures, there is virtually a new Board (apparently there are now only three members of last season's Board). Maybe this is a good thing as, arguably, change was needed at Board level, and this is the price of both the slump in on...

Re: Wigglesworth in!

I agree with JohntheGriff, and on balance welcome his signing. One thing Tigers have lacked is players with 'nous' and game management, and his experience will be invaluable, especially when Youngs and Ford are away. His mentoring of White, JvP and Laws will help to fill the hole left by the unfortu...

Whilst it is a shame to hear of Rob Taylor needing to leave, and I am sure we all wish him and his family well, it is incredibly frustrating to, once again, have significant change within the coaching staff.Interim stand-ins for Rob and Boris are all very well, but new permanent replacements will ne...

Re: Bye Bye Boris

Blimey this is a bit of shocking news. Just get the coaching set-up sorted and this happens.
Great coach, a proper character, and he has become a club legend.He will be missed.
Good luck Boris!

Re: Coaching Staff vs International Players

Exeter have a settled squad playing with plenty of internationals, and they have been playing to a system that has taken years to perfect. They tweak it and add one or two quality players (most recently Hogg, Gray, a couple of South Africans), but their systems stay the same and everyone knows what ...

Re: Rugby And all sports’ fans matter!

[quote=Tiglon post_id=755149 time=1602503795 user_id=9329] I'm not sure it shows that the situation is precarious, it just shows that those clubs want to save some money. Not every business that uses the furlough scheme is on the brink of going under. Let's be honest, the only reason rugby might nee...
