Re: What gets your goat in the rugby of today?

Player with the ball, half tackled, usually not held, allowed to crawl forward while clearly off feet. Defence unable to do anything to get to the ball.

Re: Phil Blake - Defence Coach

Alternatively... Its a round-ball term, often used simply to mean a heavy emphasis on defence, originally developed in Italy where they suffered years of 1-0 results as a result. More specifically means deployment of a sweeper (libero), whose only role is to act as the 'door bolt', keeping control b...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

I don’t want to confuse too many on here with facts but we last had a five game winning streak in the Premiership earlier this year - 17th Feb to 7th April, with wins away to Sarries, Worcester and Bath, and at home to Wasps and Quins.

There is a huge area of green that doesn't get attacked.
He never mixes it up, inside ball, offload in behind, chip over the top etc
Have we moved off topic - or is there another George Ford playing in the Prem?

That’s not the George Ford I see when I watch Leicester Tigers.

Re: Murphy appointed head coach

Could it be we know who the new Defence Coach will be but that it was a condition of appointment/accepting the role that Tigers had a permanent guy at the top of the tree?

Good luck to Geordan - of the course the best make their own luck!

Re: Missing Players

I share the frustration of many fans that we are kept in the dark over injuries . We would all have so much more confidence if we were informed of the injury situation. But it’s not about our confidence is it? It’s about the team winning & if that means keeping the oppo guessing what our team will ...

Re: How to Keep Manu at Tigers

Yep. For far too long we've kept players because they'd been at Tigers a long time and felt we owed them. So who is that then? There were plenty moaning here about losing Mulipola last off-season, or Barrow and then Slater the previous year (all with substantial periods of injury), And Salvi. Parli...
