Re: PRC Round 2 - Tigers vs Exeter

[quote=MikeR post_id=723996 time=1569579007 user_id=11215] Well , if we don't beat that Exeter team we may have a problem . They have only 4 experienced players - Short,Holmes, Dennis and South but the rest are Dev/Academy . However they will be fit and well drilled in Exeter methods and gameplan . ...

Re: Dave Denton Announces Retirement

It must have been a difficult time leading to this tough outcome. A real shame to have a career cut short while still relatively young.
Whatever the future holds, I wish him good luck.

Re: Steve Booth

So sad to hear this. Such a strong character - a spikey, unconventional player, always good to watch.
Far too young - 42 is no age.
Condolences to his family and friends.

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

Pure idle speculation here, but has anyone any thoughts as to how they would feel if say Jim Ratcliffe were to bid to buy the club? I have no idea if he has any interest in rugby, but he seems to want to invest heavily in sporting activities - Ben Ainslie's British America's Cup, British Triathlon, ...

Jan McGinity now confirmed. Also a new role for Glynn. www.leicestertigers.com/news/tigers-exp ... d-the-team

Other reports suggest that Ford is also staying, and Pat Howard is to have a 'mentoring role', one week a month, to help Geordan push through the changes he wants to see.

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

[quote=jgriffin post_id=721095 time=1561456902 user_id=9496] Unlike Mrs G's reaction, for me this has been on the cards since Tom Scott took nearly 50% of the shares several years ago. I expected when Mr Scott caught a cold so would Tigers, and thus it has come to pass. Unless we get a Nigel Wray or...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

On one level, this seems to be a highly opportunistic move by the Board. The CVC buy-in cash has clearly been the catalyst. It has cleared the company of debt so let's get the thing to the market, take the money, and get out. That's the cycnical view. We will see, I suppose.... In the meantime, I am...
