Re: Tigers vs Brive

I often get fed up with the stupid comments made by commentators but I missed them tonight. Sitting with my chums at the game, there is always someone among us who knows who the players are. This year, with so many new faces and my eyesight not as good as it was, I struggle a bit. It surprised me ho...

Re: Manu - Sale injury update

Best piece of business we did since we let Lewis Moody go You could not be more wrong in the case of Lewis Moody. It showed our players and potential players that it doesn't matter how good a servant to the club you have been, how often you laid your body on the line, this club you have loved will ...

Re: Saracens v Leicester Tigers XV 12th December 2020

Tigers, Bears, Chiefs ,Falcons.

Surely now Saffacens must adopt the name "Cheaters"......

What could be more apt?

Re: Tigers v Chiefs

CMK should take that whistle and shove it where the sun won't shine.
From the "high" tackle round the shins onwards it was incredulous.

Re: Luke Pearce

I thought he missed a lot but won't labour the point.

How about Henry Purdy man of the match? Playing 15 for the first time that I can remember
He had a blinder and looked a class player. But then he looked really special in the academy years ago.

It was great to see some of our players with a smile on their faces.

Re: Borthwick

Human nature being what it is, I have no doubt Austin's comments will be just the "gee-up" Borthwick needs.
An equal and opposite reaction from him on the field is the best retort.

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

A great try following a rampaging run by Joe Batley for Warriors yesterday. I was very surprised and upset when Tigers didn't take him on at the end of his lone period. He had done well at Tigers too.

Re: European finals 2020

Oh just be glad for them. A real English club not an Irish province pretending to be a club, not a bunch of SC cheats,
not a rich man's play thing. For heaven's sake, be a sport and wish them well..

Re: European finals 2020

I enjoyed the game and the way it ebbed and flowed. I have never been a fan of Nigel Owens but I didn't think he was too bad today. Rassing were very strong and their squad cost an awful lot of money. Considering where they have come from, it would be churlish in the extreme to rubbish Exeter's achi...

I don't agree that none of today's team will be playing in the coming season, especially during the numerous internationals.

Re: Tigers vs Bristol

Get this in proportion chaps. Did anyone seriously think we were in with a chance against that team? Tigers consisted of second team and academy players . Sinkler for instance would be a hard nut to crack had we fielded Cole and Genge. Given the weather and CMK who hates us, this had a hiding to not...

Re: Tigers vs Bristol

The result, in the context of the season, doesn't matter a jot. I am pleased to see the youngsters getting a start against a strong side and despite the other heavy defeats, have enjoyed the way many of them have shone. Full marks to the coaches for using the golden opportunities presented by the "d...

Re: Team vs Saints

I enjoyed the game. All the comments by the commentators and pundits that Stains played poorly was very disrespectful to us. On paper it was a good team and you can but play what's put in front of you. It will take time to gel into the team we want to see but I was encouraged by our performance and ...

Re: Tigers vs Sale - 05 Sep 20

Looking at the large contingent of SA players they are fielding they look as if they
are emulating "Saffercens". By the quality of their squad and the fact they can afford to pay Manu
I have to wonder is that the only leaf they have taken from their book?
