Re: next manager

Cocker inherited a squad that was lying eighth in the Premiership and looked to be out of Europe, he had an immediate impact and we actually made the Heineken Cup Final with our injury hit squad although losing after further on pitch injuries. We also won the Premiership. Over the next few years un...

Re: Relegation / How to avoid Relegation?

How to avoid relegation? Accept the teams limitations and play a style suited. Like many teams struggling Leicester don't particularly know what their playing identity is in my opinion. Leicester are a big heavy pack and not suited to endlessly running around, they scrummage and can carry the ball ...

Re: Tigers v Saints

Apologies if this point has already been made, too many pages to review. There were two issues that struck me. Firstly players were making line breaks and getting in to good positions, but rarely was there close support for the off-load; no one was offering themselves as an option rather than go for...

Re: Worcester vs Tigers

Spot on Wells,I'll get slated for this too probably but even though he's very good at what he does Connor Murray bores me to tears at times,scripted rugby can be awful. But then I see Toulouse score a try from their own 22 and the world is alright again! :smt002 No slating, but I am interested in y...

Re: Worcester vs Tigers

When you need to perform the sorry excuse for a tactic that is the catapillar as often as Leicester do then know they are in trouble! White even encourages it, my word he is so so slow that it's unreal that he's actually paid to play! But if you are using the box kick, you want to give your SH the ...

Re: Worcester vs Tigers

What a weekend for England and Leicester sport! :censored: depressing. On reflection, Tigers were no better or worse than I expected us to be, given the time of year. The problem as I see it is, the 6N period and the expectation that our second and third string can compete with a club who are not d...

Re: Bath next week ....

I thought that was a try, if players are going to chop tackle then it's fair enough that attackers will try and step over it, otherwise we will be seeing more broken legs! So even though there's a law stating you cannot jump into tackles or over players to avoid a tackle, you thought it was ok If t...

Re: Bath next week ....

Doyle had an interesting day, quite right about the illegality of the jump but then fails to tmo more obvious questions. What were his TJ's looking at? Stops the game for no injury, but allows play to head to a prone player resulting in a further injury. I presume some questions will be asked.... A...

Re: Bath next week ....

The forum is being over run by footy fans! That was a gutsy performance today given the circumstances. Part of the rebuilding process.. a great defensive effort.........we've been moaning about poor defence for how long, the boys put a shift in against a top notch back row and still we moan. I'm go...

Re: Tigers v Racing

The club doesn’t need to get rid of all the coaches :censored: It’s what has caused this problem to begin with. As Genge said sacking so many coaches and players causes teams to lose that pack mentality. Tigers need to be patient bring in some senior people who know how rugby players think at put t...

Re: Genge in the Telegraph

Agree with Genge, the academies all around England are private school focused mainly because it is the most cost effective, Schools hire ex players to coach, Schools give scholarships to best club players, ex players have links with Prem clubs etc etc. And I'm not against picking players from priva...

Re: Genge in the Telegraph

They say it is the greatest job in the world – you :censored: go and run into a 150kgs Samoan for a living. I’ve ripped my shoulder off the bone. I’ve got no cartilage left in my knee. 3 pages of comment and no words on this. He's 23 and has already had a meniscus removed (at least I assume that is...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

Agree BFG, streetfighters like Genge and Ford leveks of skill are there at 15, but the 'connected' get chosen. Yes and it's growing, worse than it ever was when I was young I think. A count around the league for those of us who know the older days reveals a growing trend in the former players son. ...
