Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Aled Walters and the Philosopher's Stone

In the post-match analysis on Radio Leicester the observation was made that Tommy Reffel was adding carrying to his repertoire even though this is not generally thought of as an attribute for the natural open side flanker. It was noted that he had "bulked up" without losing any speed and t...

Can't be any worse than CMK was in the Sarries game
Maybe not but if anyone can get close or even worse surely it has to be Dickson? :smt005

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Aled Walters and the Philosopher's Stone

I have a dream of a premiership final or semi final v Quins with Nemani at full pace and power smashing through (legally of course) Smith and Care on his way to the try line. Please let it happen.

Re: PRC Semi final vs London Irish (A) - 26th April 2022

The fact that Jansen is playing would seem to suggest that one of our rested or injured back rowers is returning to the squad for Bristol.

Re: Under the radar signings

Austin Healey has commented on this, on a number of occasions, citing the likes of Porter and Potter as players who have really made the step up, that possibly other clubs wouldn’t have looked at, Dan Kelly is possibly another. I think we may have unearthed another in Sean Jansen, who Nadolo tweete...

Re: Quins v Leicester - 23rd April 2022 KO 15:00

This :smt027 I find it curious that SB has chosen reduced strength sides for big games against close competitors. Yesterday and home and away v Sarries. We did play Sarries in the international windows, but still went with a lot of youth. It means we (and the pundits, though it won’t stop them from...

Re: Quins v Leicester - 23rd April 2022 KO 15:00

Just to get some perspective. Quins were at more or less full strength. Tigers started the game with 3rd choice loosehead, 3rd choice hooker, 2nd choice tighthead, 3rd choice 7 and 3rd or 4th choice 8. In the backs we had our 2nd choice 12, 2nd choice fly half playing at full back. So out of a team ...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Aled Walters and the Philosopher's Stone

Regarding Reffell. I was half listening to Radio Leicester on my way home from the Clermont game and one of the commentators was talking about him and the lure of Wales. They said they had been told that he is really enjoying his rugby at Tigers and was talking about not disrupting his family by a m...

Re: 21/22 Injury/Suspension Thread

So worst case scenarios for back row and centre. Back row assuming we will be without Martin and MVS for rest of season and Chessum for 3 weeks that leaves us Hanro at 6, Reffell at 7 and Jasper at 8 with Robinson or Jansen on the bench. If Chessum not banned or less than 3 weeks then position impro...

Re: Clermont (Away) - Sunday 10th April 2022

So Ford is rusty due to underuse by England and the proposed response is to take him off rather than allow him to regain some match fitness and form in time for the 2nd leg of this fixture and upcoming matches like the one against Harlequins in the premiership? Sorry but i just don't get it. If we w...

Re: 21/22 Injury/Suspension Thread

And one assumes he’s been injured recently or he would have at least been on the bench and had more games. I think he is very much in the minds of the coaches as this squad progresses. I have said before ..I think he brings an extra dimension in defence.. some of hits are so bone shuddering it ofte...

Ashton wanting to stay next season - no brainier for all parties surely?
No disrespect to Anthony Watson but I'd rather keep Chris Ashton.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Aled Walters and the Philosopher's Stone

I do worry about us signing Watson following his ACL injury. If fit he would be a good signing for any club but how many players come back as fit and fast as they were after ACL surgery? Might he also be a liability on certain types of artificial pitches? There's a nagging doubt in my mind about whe...
