Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE VI: The Return of the Burns

White didn't get the chance because a younger academy player excelled when he played where as White was never more than ok TBH I expected Simmons to surpass him in attacking mode, injuries allowing, as has JvP. That is a fair point; he almost became the number 2 by default with Simmons injuries and...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE VI: The Return of the Burns

Surprised by that move if honest. Thought he'd be picked up by another Premiership club. Good luck though Sam, hopefully he uses this opportunity as a springboard! I'm sure he'll be back in the Prem in the next couple of years. I feel the salary cuts and covid have meant there's no money left for p...

Well good luck to him. Glad he's secured another club even if it is abroad. Let's hope he gets the game time he deserves and comes back to the Prem or Championship in a couple of years. :smt041 :smt041 :smt041

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE VI: The Return of the Burns

I'm really surprised Sam Lewis has been released. :smt017 Sadly the reality is he’s now 23 and has spent most of the year on loan in the Championship. He needed to be establishing himself as a first team regular at Tigers at this point, as 19 year old Martin, Chessum and slightly older Henderson ar...

Is Ben White injured ?

As I can’t remember the last time he played, otherwise there maybe truth in this
Think his technique with the shami leather isn't up to scratch.
Not injured just not selected. 5 games in a row now :smt011

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE VI: The Return of the Burns

High chance of it being a rumour plucked from thin air due to the departure of Ben Meehan Rumour or not would you blame him if he did go? Second choice to 4th choice in a matter of months. His worth will go down if he just stays waiting for game time. He hasn't been in the first team squad for the ...

Re: Championship rugby

Nic Dolly of Tigers is the brother of Alex Dolly, the Notts scrum half. Out of those named, actually only Browning (on loan/DR) and Coghlan (loan) are actually current Tigers players. The rest are Nottingham’s own so actually the question about ‘whether you want them back’ doesn’t really apply. Dav...

Pity, but was on the cards. I hoped he'd stay with us and progress, but I hope he does well where ever ends up. Wonder if he'll get picked up by Cockers?
Would be great if he did!!

Jake Kerr - released from contract

https://www.leicestertigers.com/news/kerr-release-april-2021 Think you'll see a few more of this in the coming weeks. Borthwick really making it known who he does and doesn't like. Shame for him - he was the number 2 hooker pre-covid. Gone back to his family in Scotland I believe. Only purchased a h...

Re: Tigers on Loan Watch

Wonder why we’ve still seen nothing of Sam A-R in a Cov shirt? SAR has only had a weeks training with Cov. They had last week off. I'm sure he'll feature soon otherwise what's the point. Looking forward to the Cov game this afternoon. Their starting no 6 had a belter of a game last time out against...

Re: Challenge Cup Quarter final 2021 v Newcastle

Another game that showcased some bits that are good about Tigers at present & other bits that certainly aren't, we struggle to adapt to the opposition on occasion, the 12 shirt really is the most open at present & is Martin going to be a 2nd row or a 6? WW just gets worse every game, he is now more...

Re: Tigers on Loan Watch

Nottingham v Coventry 5.30 pm 27th March

Sam Lewis on the bench for Coventry. Could do with a rest I suppose, he's had lots of starts.

Jordan Coghlan starts at 8 for Nottingham. No sign of Joe Browning and the others getting a run out yet.

Charlie Thacker (ex Tigers) also starts for Notts
