Re: George Fords Departure - Why ?

I still rate Farrell very highly, I just don't think he's a 12. To me it's just a way of trying to shoehorn him and another fly-half into the team.

Amazed to see that Reffell doesn't even make the bench for some people. Our most underrated player without any shadow of a doubt.
However, it does show how much strength in depth we have at back row.

I didn't watch the game. Can someone who did tell me how Dan Lancaster got on please? What a fantastic result! It's incredible how quickly we have managed to develop a squad with such depth.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Lord of the Mauls

I know I may be an outlier but never rated Pollard sadly. Over hyped in my opinion. Don’t get me wrong he’s very good but not crazy money good. I think we’d be better spending the money to secure some of our core players like Genge for the future. That said, now I’ve said that he’ll probably prove ...

Re: George Fords Departure - Why ?

Yeah,why doesn’t Farrell have to go away “and work on things”? He’s got way more flaws than Ford! It could just simply be that Farrell is an alpha male within the group whereas Ford is a loner so doesn’t offer the leadership that’s wanted from a 10. I'm not sure whether you're trolling or not. Did ...

Re: Next Number 10 ?

I've warmed to the idea of Lozowski. Defensively sound, good kicker, plenty of experience at this level and having spent so much time with Saracens, I think he'd buy into what we are building under Borthwick. He is comfortable playing 10 or 12 which gives us the option to play Freddie, Heggarty or L...

Rowntree, Cockerell, Garforth, Johnson Kay Back Moody Corry Who were the tens? Fat bloke called Andy and a chopsy scouser? ......there was this fellow called Stransky for a time.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Lord of the Mauls

I don't see any point in looking at Finn Smith. We've brought Lancaster in as the "young up and coming 10", so don't see the point in bringing another one in. I agree that you don't necessarily need a world-class 10 to be successful. We've had Goodey and Flood, to name two that were very ...

Re: George Fords Departure - Why ?

By the way, I'm not suggesting that Dan Lancaster won't turn out to be good enough. He might well turn out to be a worldbeater for all we know and there will still be plenty of opportunities for him to get some game time if we sign another fly-half. It's just that I find some of the suggestions othe...

Re: George Fords Departure - Why ?

I find it remarkable that there are people on here seriously suggesting that we wouldn't need to see sign a quality fly-half now that we are losing a genuinely world class number ten. I along with probably most people that follow rugby would consider fly-half to be on of the three most important pos...

Re: George Fords Departure - Why ?

How is it deluded?! Youre telling me Burns and Hegarty arnt good enough prem 10s if Muri covers Steward? Of course they are! They are good enough if we are only aspiring to finish somewhere between 6th and 10th, but not if we are wanting to challenge for the title. This is a competitive league and ...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Lord of the Mauls

Devil's advocate question. Could we manage with Burns, Hegarty, Lancaster and Socino and invest the George Ford money elsewhere? Maybe an international lock or like for like replacement for one of Nemani Nadolo or Kini Murimurivalu who given their respective ages won't be around for ever. Short ans...
