... I think I will keep to my current (admittedly simplistic) view that whichever team wins the World Cup is the best team in the world until the next World Cup. All the jockeying for positions in between the World Cups is irrelevant.
I used to think that....until 6 November 2009!

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2018-19

Basteraud to Munster,he's received a genuine offer apparently ..and apparently he's politely refused the offer. He's looking for a club until December when his contract with New York begins. Montpellier, Stade Français and Lyon are in the running to sign him, so whatever club he ends up at he'll ha...

Marler on form (and he has this past season) is a better scrummager than .....Genge so why not praise him for sorting his mindset out to get back in the England squad?
I'd beg to differ on that, regarding tight play, and even Moon is better than Marler in the loose.

Jan McGinity now confirmed. Also a new role for Glynn. www.leicestertigers.com/news/tigers-expand-team-behind-the-team Other reports suggest that Ford is also staying, and Pat Howard is to have a 'mentoring role', one week a month, to help Geordan push through the changes he wants to see.

Tigers valued over twice as much as Gloucester was according to this http://sport.bt.com/rugby-union-hub/rug ... 4040375444

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD

He was 'most difficult opponent' because of his scrummaging ability, not his handling. With the utmost respect Tom, I think you need to watch this. Apart from his renowned scrummaging ability he displays some excellent handling including one outrageous "out the back door" pass, some crunching tackl...

Re: Not a happy place like the Ricoh!

...... The EU bit is all to do with the original sale of the stadium. See here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/48281254 All sounds a bit desperate by the football club. Bit much to suggest the Ricoh was undervalued on the sale to the Insects. Iirc their accounts showed a diminution in value f...

Re: Not a happy place like the Ricoh!

Thanks for that, Sam, but I still find it hard to accept that Coventry City Council’s decision could be considered ‘state aid’, particularly when our steel industry is collapsing because our state isn’t allowed to offer it aid, despite state aid being permissible in France and Germany having had its...

Re: GROUNDS

Not been to many in my time but the Stade du Michelin is a place I’d kill to go to Worst stadium: Ricoh by a long shot. Agree on both counts. Ricoh might have a station next to it but the service is infrequent and can't cope with the volume. Stade Marcel-Michelin -great stadium, fabulous fans in a ...

I'm not overly fussed by Wallace, he's a good clubman who never lived up to his early promise. ...
Never to be forgiven for being bound on by one arm at 90 degrees, head above the tunnel and steering our scrum sideways so that we lost by a penalty try 3-4 seasons back.
