Re: Exeter Chiefs

Love the debate, not sure I'm understanding all of it but fully respect everyones opinion. I thought I'd throw this in. I have no intention of belittling the importance of the situation and I fully expect to get pulled to pieces over this but hey all opinions welcome. At any rugby match and cricket ...

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

Could I just ask those posters who are constantly criticising the club for the way they have handled this to explain what they would like to have happened instead? I would be interested in hearing an alternative approach. Playing it out in the press is not great but it has been determined that this ...

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

Guess so, copied for those who haven't seen it. The Club’s commercial activities have felt the pandemic’s impact more than most Premiership Rugby clubs, given the size of its stadium and fan base. To date, the Club has missed out on approximately £5.0 million of revenues since it was last able to ho...

Statement from the club confirming some players and unfortunately a significant number of staff will be leaving. Wishing them all the best for the future.

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

It’s an unfortunate situation, in particular because in the case of Tigers it has attracted publicity and negative, sensationalist comment in the press, on this forum and I’m sure across social media. To put it in perspective there are people across the UK and indeed the world who have had their liv...

Yep, and all we can do is wait and look forward to the end of the endless speculation. Whether this is the end of the beginning or the beginning of the end only time will tell.

Re: European Challenge Cup - Cardiff vs Tigers

Wow, now even a win isn't good enough for a lot of people on here it now has to be a 'pretty' win against the worlds best team before any credit is given. I went to Cardiff and yes it wasn't the best game but I enjoyed the atmosphere, the spirit and the bragging rights with a couple of mates afterwa...

Re: The World Cup Final

My god this forum is depressing! Of course it's disappointing that England came up short but they were beaten by a better team on the day. This came only a week after one of Englands best ever 80 minutes of rugby IMO. To criticise and blame everyone and everything associated with England rugby is so...

Cardiff away tickets?

It appears Tigers have had an allocation of tickets which have been sold. I don't recall getting any notification that tickets were available through the Tigers, which as a season ticket holder I would have expected! I've been advised by the Tigers ticket office to buy direct from Cardiff Blues. Is ...

Re: Howard to mentor Murphy

Board must go major change required, so club being sold.......must be a sell out, profiteering, lack of commitment by the Board. Coaches out of their depth, so quality additions appointed.......not more ex Tigers, being done on the cheap. Anyone else bored with the endless negativity :smt015 :smt015

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

I read with interest that the 'sack everybody' brigade who now have every chance of seeing that happen suddenly appear to be getting cold feet!! The constant remonstrations about the incompetence of the board have now changed to accusations of selling out and profiteering. It's not particularly prof...
