Re: Should Eddie have been cited?

The answer to the original question is no!

It was good to see Eddie back to his old self rather than following the RFU line and trying to be Clive Woodward, who now bores for England..... :smt015 :smt015 :smt015

Re: 4 weeks for Manu 10 for Marler

All seems harsh to me, just play on. The punch from the French lad apart which as it was instigated by some scowling collar grabbing mischief-maker probably warrants two weeks. Ten weeks just for a bit of fun. I never thought I'd see Alun Whinge-Jones joining the Me-toos. He's been compared to John...

Re: England v Wales

Well with all the talking points post game, we seem to have forgotten that England played very well and easily beat a strong Welsh team. The score line massively flattered the Welsh. And a Triple Crown, not to be sniffed at!! As for Manu, he was incredibly unlucky to be red carded. North was nearly ...

Re: Sarries vs Leicester - Teams Up

I see we have the battle of the Reffell's at 7!!

Big coincidence or are they actually related?

Re: England v Wales

Yes Underhill is injured, not specified what.

But it is a good team and they need to play very well as Wales are virtually at full strength with Biggar, North and L Williams all playing.

Nice to see Watson back, just wish he was at 15 not 14!

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

Our pack is gradually getting sorted and that will improve further when SB arrives. But our backs without the England boys are truly woeful, so Nadolo sounds great to me and I also agree that Mills would be a good signing it we could get him, but young Lawrence (20) looked real class yesterday, I wo...

Re: Tigers vs Worcester

Sadly, the corner flag obscured the camera view slightly so I assume they had no conclusive proof to overturn the ref's on field decision of no try. That was the TMOs judgement, nothing conclusive to overturn the on field guess. Presumably if the on-field decision had been "TRY" then it would not h...

Re: England v Ireland

Joseph on the wing! What's the point of having Thorley in the squad if he's not going to pick him when all our other wings are injured?!

Seriously hope Manu lasts the duration, it's a massive risk only having two backs on the bench with Manu and Slade in the 23!!

Re: England v Ireland

If Manu's properly fit he must start. Slade on the bench. Hope Earl gets a start at 8 and it's a bout time Thorley was given a chance on the wing in place of Daly or move Daly back to 15 and put Thorley to 11. Jack Nowell is such a loss (Watson/Nowell by far our best 15s), but his whole career has b...

I'm always hopeful, but regretfully not optimistic about this game at all.

I shall watch from behind the back of the sofa as per usual!

Re: Tigers vs Wasps - 15th Feb

Watched it on the TV, one of my better decisions recently! Great tackle by White, definitely not high, despite Dayglo's protests! Thought the forwards showed real fight in the second half, we have the "bones" of a promising pack, but still desperately need a first class hooker, much as a love OTY, h...
