Re: Legal case with ex-players

Didnt Wasps and Quins go over the cap but this was never intentional. If I recall, they were fined a few thousand pounds. Quin's overran by about £12k due to an IT/system issue (someone messed up an Excel formula). Wasps went 'slightly' over the cap to the tune of about £40k. There was some questio...

Re: Other Round 22 Fixtures

some of the nonsense on here coming from fellow Tigers fans is just depressing. Seriously, what have Sale done that's so offensive to you all, or is it just because they signed Manu? The bitterness is outright embarrassing, grow up. I don't think it is Sale or Manu it is aimed at, it's the complete...

Re: Other Round 22 Fixtures

Yeah, but the main point.... Sale can't field a side on Sunday... so why are they being given preferential treatment... it stinks! Exactly, if false positives due to human error in testing process Northampton should be able to play on Wednesday as well. Northampton are not playing as they are unabl...

Re: Toulon v Tigers - Challenge Cup Semi

Another thing I kept saying over and over and over again. Big mistake going A team then Z team then A etc. Needed to constantly mix it up You may keep saying it but that doesn't change the player welfare requirements about how many minutes they can play and how many starts they're allowed. There's ...

Re: Fans supporting the club.

On a post back in July I suggested:- "Change structure from a PLC with a small number of shareholders to a fan owned rugby club. Get 20000 fans to pay £3000 each. This would guarantee a seat for next 10 years insted of a season ticket. Would raise £60mio for the club. Fans (shareholders) would have...

I think its being refereed in accordance with the respective league positions.
This is nothing new - teams deemed to be 'better' get all the decisions their way.

It is just as prevalent at international level

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

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...
