Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD

Let’s look at the detail though. For starters, there’s a good chance natural ability can be passed down; not always, but reasonably often. Now on to schools: surely it’s pointless looking at where they went to school whilst in the Academy? Many go to state schools but move into the private schools ...

Re: Tigers on TV today

It wasn't Rodber that Corry floored, it was the other Saints lock who had thrown several punches at Healey but failed to connect with any of them.

At the time Rodber was having handbags with Backy

Re: England v Wales

Not seen it noted on here anywhere but chit chat on Soshul Meja suggesting Jonny May has broken jaw... :smt017 Big up the England physio who left him on the field if true.... Parkes didn't tackle Manu, it was nothing just a collesion, the players reaction told you that, Owens should of had 10, Sanj...

Genuine question: what about Hadleigh Parkes’ tackle on Manu or Liam Williams on Curry?
The Parkes one is a disgrace. Was the Liam Williams the flip clearance out of the ruck? If so should have been a yellow IMO (same goes for Ken Owens, England scoring shouldn't have negated it)

Re: Oh dear, Mr Rowe...

Letting them in would have cost nothing but potentially generated revenue from programs, food & drink etc.

Then if he must ensure that they're aware they won't be allowed in next time

Re: England v Wales

Manu's was a red all day long under the current guidelines - first point of contact was the head and with force. Mind you so was Parkes' on Manu that got nothing because he bounced up and play carried on after just the penalty. Ken Owens' would probably have been a yellow had England not scored as i...

I don't know what offer the scarlets are putting but he could really be starting for them next season IMO.
Ahead of Patchell (RWC semi finalist) and Dan Jones who a lot of people think might still keep Patchell out when he comes back from injury?

Re: QUINS VS TIGERS 28TH DEC

Feel that the ref changed his opinion of the scrum for the last few minutes. The scrum we splintered and shoved back at a rate and then the knock on and offside missed. That should have been Tigers penalty near halfway with a man advantage and 4 minutes to play. In the last minute defensive scrum co...

Re: The World Cup Final

The last England Prop that could scrummage the life out of any oppostion was Andrew Sheridan. Since then its been more about park running and becoming lither--as we have seen with Cole..

Re: The World Cup Final

South Africa dominated every aspect of the game and thoroughly deserved their win. They managed to keep England playing a very narrow game and not unleashing Tuilagi, May or Watson. Youngs was headless for the first 25 minutes and put Ford in some dire situations. Daly had his worst game in quite a ...

Bish, bosh, bash and kick versus bish, bosh, bash and kick. Why did Wales not trust the backs more?
IMHO Foxy wasn't fully fit so they didn't want him to injure himself thinking they'd still sneak through and he'd be fine for the final

Re: ITV coverage of WC

Bit surprised by the lack of highlights. On ITV4 at 7, ITV at way past midnight. No preview shows at all. This was a World Cup semi final! Presume they've paid a fair bit for the coverage, surprised they're not making more of it. I know it's live at a difficult time, but they havn't really made muc...

Re: ENG vs NZ - RWC Semi

Disappointed to have Owens as ref, he peaked a few years ago and has been in decline since then. Too many odd decisions these days. I felt that way too about a year ago but he's since been in the up again IMO. Still think Barnes is the best around at the moment. What happened to Glen Jackson? He wa...
