Re: Premier league final day.

Depends if people want owners with rather debatable (at best) back stories......see Football for plenty of examples. If Tigers can't get the books to balance off the back of 20,000 crowds the game isn't exactly financially stable, however much we love the game, compared to football & "Ameri...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Steve Borthwick and the Chamber of Oval Park

In many ways Tigers in the 22/23 season is much more a reflection of where we are as a team & Borthwick is as a Head Coach, to me the "easy" things have been sorted. At present Borthwick just wouldn't work off field for the RFU, for me the secret squirrel stuff at Tigers is annoying, n...

Wasps scrum was destroyed by Sale and it won't be any better now that Stooke is out. They are a dangerous team, but it's hard to win games when your set piece is a disaster.
Yet they beat us at at Ricoh, with a weaker team than they will probably have in a fortnight.

Re: Congratulations Tommy Reffell

7 is not exactly a weak position for Wales they have more than they know what to do with. You would be surprised if Pivac lasts beyond the RWC (note to England if they want Shaun Edwards), the number of regions might drop, the eligibility rules might change.. it's a really difficult choice for Tommy...

Re: Rassie's job is no more

Need to get the Physios off the pitch as well unless they are actually treating someone, far too many of them (including ours) are encroaching onto the field of play. The whole game needs speeding up, you used to be out of WR by 1640 at the latest for a 1500hrs k.o., less time taken for players to g...

That's what I thought. He was on the pitch at the Stoop afterwards. Mauger wasn't, I don't think.
Pretty sure it was known Mauger was doomed & the camera cut to him in the stand or a box.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Steve Borthwick and the Chamber of Oval Park

Rob evans will be a decent addition for someone Very rarely fit these days unfortunately, he has better handling skills than many backs. A fit Rob Evans would be a very astute signing for most teams. It is a bit odd we haven't posted the leavers yet unless there are still some negotiations outstand...

Mauger
???
Mauger won us that trophy iirc and then was unceremoniously binned the day after
& the board searched the entire Rugby Playing Community for his replacement.....

Wasn't Geordie in charge of the PRC team that season?

When you think of the level the top Welsh clubs were at pre Professionalism, the current state of affairs is a joke.

Re: EPCR Semi finals

From Stuart Barnes, today, Mon 16th May: "Make no mistake, they (Leinster) are Ireland in all but name and Ireland are without doubt one of the best four teams on the planet. In retrospect, Leicester Tigers produced a magnificent effort to lose by only nine points in the quarter final. Toulous...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Steve Borthwick and the Chamber of Oval Park

He’s under contract next season so he has a few months to decide what to do. In saying that back row is one of our areas of strength so although I would like to keep him it all depends on his salary demands. If he tours & wins a cap, window shuts, at present it means return to Wales or Internat...
