Re: Interviews - LTTV by Bondi

One of the main objectives of an interviewer is to help the interviewee answer the questions. It’s not about being Jeremy Paxman. Bondi’s style did nothing to help Andrea give clear answers. Borthwick was far more prepared and gave direct answers because he has been given training on how to face and...

Interviews - LTTV by Bondi

Steve Borthwick had some very interesting and informative things to say in his Tigers’ interview, but it was so difficult to watch! The constant editing of camera angles at inappropriate moments and the chaotic approach of the interviewer smack of a very amateur production, but perhaps not quite as ...

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

Stop all the discussions re Manu - as I said over a week ago - he will engage in brinkmanship AGAIN, before agreeing to stay - https://twitter.com/midi_olympique/status/1279803512126418949?s=21&fbclid=IwAR2pBrd5VZGfhZHTrut0YXir98Lf5YrUqgA8P0-w008Re5QharQ_CLcFUj8 Midi olympique is rarely wrong But t...

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

The Telegraph, Friday afternoon: “ A weekend of last-minute deliberations may yet see Manu Tuilagi remain a Leicester Tigers player. The Daily Telegraph understands that there has been a ‘change of heart’ amongst those involved in the discussions and there is some hope that the next 48 hours may see...

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

Andrea Pinchen May have kept some people happy with her interview, the legal representatives of Manu amongst them. By naming the players who had not accepted the revised remuneration packages, she may have breached confidentiality clauses. This could be very expensive for the club who may be ordere...

Re: Potential lockdown in Leicester

If it happens, and Mike Hancock has been widely trailing it, its a fair guess that it will be subject to a review after three weeks, as have other COVID restrictions. No training for three weeks? That’s the end of a mid August start for Tigers season. Would this affect other clubs European expectati...

Salary Cap changes

From The Telegraph: Premiership clubs have unanimously agreed to slash temporarily the salary cap to £5 million for the 2021-22 season in a bid to avert financial oblivion.

Burgess sounds bitter, but Mike Ford doesn’t come out of it well, and Lancaster didn’t manage the issues.

What about Robshaw for a steadying hand for a season? He’s announced he’s leaving Quins.
