Re: Uncontested scrums

I remember Corbisiero also refusing to go to TH after Ayerza had demolished Ma’afu and Denman against Saints. Corbisiero has been capped as a TH for England Saxons.

Re: Uncontested scrums

Different forces on your body coming from different angles, can make playing in an unfamiliar front row position quite difficult. I played TH for many years with only a few awkward moments, but always struggled massively at LH. Hooker I found slightly easier. But at a higher level I’m sure it’s a lo...

Re: Uncontested scrums

I believe any other injuries, yes you have to drop a player, but for head injuries it’s different. They originally said Tom West was the backup hooker and they would remain contested scrums, but when Barnes asked him just as the change was due to be made (it was at a scrum), West said he wasn’t conf...

Re: Uncontested scrums

I think the fact Oghre went off due to head injury was the key factor. Barnes was quite clear on that whilst the decision was ongoing.

Re: Team for Exeter

never really a fan of a 6-2 split on the bench but it the plan is have the back row go all out then ring the changes I suppose is need to be done Absolutely this. I really dislike it as a selection approach, seems negative. Tomorrow for me is all about intent rather than result. If we show grater i...

Re: Team for Exeter

Not sure we could have expected any different, given the losses of Manu, Reid, Eastmond, May, Thompstone, Holmes and Veianu, and the fact the replacements are by and large not yet here, that’s about what we have. It will be more about the type of rugby we play, so long as the new coaching is startin...

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

Are we still expecting any further squad additions between end of this season and start of next? Ot will the additions of Montoya, Wiesse and Moroni likely be it?

Re: Team for Exeter

I think some of the posts do Wallace a disservice. I was surprised he didn’t get picked up last year by another Prem club. He’s a class operator at 6 or 7, mobile, tenacious, not short on skill. That’s not to say Reffell can’t or won’t surpass him in time if he follows the trajectory many anticipate...

Re: Team for Exeter

I’d be looking to go full strength on game one.
Result isn’t crucial, but the performance is.
Get on the right path from game one, and then make adjustments to suit from there on.

@RagingBull are you still expecting a centre and possibly a couple of projects?

Still waiting for a prop and another centre based on what RB posted last week, plus maybe a project or two.

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

I’m not too worried about the number of arrivals, as a clean sweep was needed (both players and coaches) in order to get ourselves out of the mess we are in. Scraping 11th two seasons running is not where we want or expect to be. Credit to the club for making the changes necessary. There’s a real pa...

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

I reckon we have a loosehead, Centre and Wiese too be announce potentially. Maybe some other project signings. That would tick the boxes nicely for me, and close out the squad very well. Roughly two senior players per position (natural positions, not filling in), maybe some extra in attritional pos...

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

So I thought yesterday, we need another prop, then another 6/8 and a 12 would be ‘nice to have’.
Well, the 6/8 looks on the cards, what are the chances of a prop and centre.
