Re: Manu Tuilagi

Rugby Pass are linking Manu with Sale, Toulouse, Racing 92, Beziers, Japan, Bristol and Leicester Tigers. They've also said it might depend on what Eddie Jones thinks. Or Gatland. Or both. Or neither. I think we can assume they haven't got a clue where he's going to end up. Yup, and I’m with sapajo...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

Guessing really , but based on various statements that The Club will spend upto the Salary Cap there will probably be further recruitment at some stage as a large amount of finance has just become available.Also , without question, players and options will be on the market. Is that ‘large amount of...

Re: Julian Montoya

Montoya is the sort of hooker that can help make props look good. Add him to Genge and Leatigaga and it could get messy. Scrum, maul, carrying, pressure, pressure and more pressure. Brute force, that can also play a bit. Did that not used to be our forte? My memory isn't that good, help me out.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

We don't receive income from it. Not so, the land the Hotel sits on is owned by the club and is leased to the hotel operator. Long term lease for which a premium was paid plus low annual rent or a shorter one with higher annual rent? If the hotel operator is paying for construction I would expect t...

Re: Cockers' linguistic skills

If I was him I don't think I'd be very tempted. Cockers has nothing left to prove in the Premiership and he seems to have a good thing going in Edinburgh. There's nothing particularly exciting about the Glouc job other than the strong fan base and the team there likely needs a whole new rebuild. Ag...

All these rumours. Some may come true some won't.

Couldn’t agree more, but the same article does note Cockers’ latest signings, including Ben Muncaster.

Pretty fair judge of rugby players, that Cockers.

The Sunday Times has an article on Scott; seems he accepted an offer to stay but Cockers couldn’t balance the books and recommended him to Geordie. “We have a budget to stick to,” said Cockerill. “Matt w...

Browning could be the next Tom Varndell in my opinion but we can’t just leave it on his shoulders next season...
And with social distancing there won’t be an opportunity to teach him how to tackle before next season.
