Re: The Nadolos

I watched the YouTube of their journey to WR. I’ve never watched a second of ‘At Home with the Kardashians’ but it would seem that ‘At Home with the Nadolos’ might be less pretentious and blingy and so a better watch.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

Got the yellow for picking up the Chiefs scrum half and throwing him away. Try was good but credit to the guy who did the crossfield kick, simple finish but Van Wyke had to be in the right position. Have to watch the scrum half throwing though, some English refs might have given a red. The yellow w...

Re: Fiji entering the 6 Nations

For Tom Weston - there's a BBC article that covers the same ground in May. The French? https://tinyurl.com/y32mrg64 We are probably fortunate that rugby is a minority sport on TV, otherwise the current COVID chaos could badly interfere with governance, with other venture/hedge types entering the fr...

The French are never happy it is their nature!

Yes this thread is for wildly optimistic transfer rumours that the entire NZ backline is moving to Welford Road
‘IS moving’ to WR?

HAS moved to WR surely but awaiting quarantine expiry and visas before the announcements are made.

Seems most Tigers fans like both kits. Funny how it seems Saints fans on social media are trying to rain on our parade. At least we haven’t got TOOL written across the chest.
Well let’s hope that with ‘Topps Tiles’ on our boys’ shirts they don’t get laid by tools like Stains!

Re: Manu Tuilagi

...Interestingly Steve Diamond is hoping to get "15 or 16" games out of Manu which is approximately every other game of 1 1/2 seasons. Guess that's how he "looks after players" That’s more than we’ve got out of him recently, isn’t it? It would make an interesting mitigation point- “Diamond Geezer S...

I can’t imagine any club in the premiership having spare cap to bring in Manu, especially Exeter. ...
A lower salary from Exeter and a top up from a contractual claim against Tigers might be enough.
