Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

Just saw that too. Some decent props in the mix there if we decide to replace Cortes.
Equally, could someone like Parrisse or Gorgodza do us a season whilst some of our younger back row players develop.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

Lavanini, Batley?, Martin
Alemanno?, Green, Jordan
Liebenberg, Wells, Lewis, Gough
Taufua, Reffell, Lavin
Brink, Coghlan, Smith

Are we 1 light? Either another 7 with Taufua flexible all across the back row, or a genuine 8 as Brink is equally at home on the flank.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

So with Kalamafomi and Thompson possibly off, will Brink be our only signing in the back row, and place some faith in Lewis, Lavin, Gough and Smith? Or do you think there’ll be another arrival? Taking into account we have Eveleigh a year back, then Illone, Smith and Muncaster a year further back aga...

Re: Transfers and Rumours Non-Tigers 2019-20

Brink is more a 6/7 than an 8 I thought.
Assumed Brink would be Thompson’s replacement, with Kalamafoni still to be replaced. Caveat to that is Taufua is playing 7 for us, but equally as comfortable at 8.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

So Orie, a big no.8 and maybe Brink on a lower salary due to his injury issues. Looks like we’re still targeting improving the pack which can only be a good thing. Not sure, maybe depends if it’s Orie & Alemanno or just Orie, and whether Thompson and/or Kalamafoni leave. Can’t see us bringing in Br...

Re: Murphy's "vision".

I hold out hope that the squad is starting to develop through squad shuffling, into something more like what is required by GM to make things work. More importantly I’m hoping SB arriving provides an up shift in our forward play (outside of the scrum obviously), and more importantly some increased i...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

Can’t profess to know that much about Orie, but for him to be in and around the Springbok squad given the sheer power they have at lock, he must have something about him. Will be be demanding Springbok wages though?? I do wonder if it’s a case of Orie or Alemanno, can’t see us adding two locks with ...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

What was the length of McPhillips deal? Just noting the wording of the Henry announcement, it says for the 20/21 season, not from. 1 year deal? Ford, Hardwick and Henry covering 10 next year with Hardwick also able to slot in at 12, and Henry slated to be also comfortable at fullback. Prefer to see ...

Wondering if the previously rumoured talk of looking at Montoya along with Alemanno could have some bearing on Singleton? Just a guess.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

Given Noumey’s very recent change to prop, I’d expect him to get a bit more time, if the club believe he’s worth waiting for.
Taking into account the new deals for Lavin, Gough and Smith, I expect only one of Thompson and Kalamafoni will be retained/replaced.

Re: Leicester Tigers Academy thread - 2019/20

When we played with structure, we looked too much for them. But when we played loose, their better carriers exposed us.

Re: Tigers vs Wasps - 15th Feb

Youngs has to take the blame for these lineout losses. I know sometimes it’s an issue of timing when the ball sails on over, but these are underthrown, they are not reaching the man, being picked off ahead of the target, and often lower down. We look so errorstrewn. And there’s still a lack of struc...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 2

It was confirmed by Tigers twitter account that Capps has been bought in as LH option, so a bit of squad juggling there. An older, and possibly more expensive salary TH who’s not being used, replaced by a younger, cheaper LH. Based on Genge being away with England... LH - Gigena, Bateman, Capps TH -...

Re: What Now For Our Season?

Our way forward now has to be all about balance of the squad. I think we made some very astute acquisitions this summer, we need to repeat this. Spencer has been mooted as leaving. He’s not hit the heights expected really, perhaps down to injuries preventing him getting a run of form. If the rumours...

Re: Tigers vs Bristol - 04th January 2020

Anyone else notice on opposition box kicks that Genge is taking the 8 role in the backfield? Against Quins and Bristol. Makes sense. Kalamafoni isn't the most explosive carrier and is a big tackler, we want Taufua in the line to compete at the breakdown. Plus how many times are you going to kick to...
