Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 7

Wasn’t MT practicing playing at full back - thought Australia were desperately seeking somebody to plug that position :smt001

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 6

I think we may well see more players announced this Monday, Probably another 3 out of Leatiagaga, Coghlan, Clare or Viljoen. Suspect Lavanini is being saved for the end of the season Most of those are already known. You’d assume the public domain known confirmed deals would be announced first, save...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 6

Fair point about OTY, I guess I default to that as Club Captain. But the point remains, there's a fair bit of depth - if you can pick an international hooker (Kerr) and still have TPN or OTY on the bench then you're in with a shot. (or should be!)

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 6

I genuinely like the enthusiasm with some of the signings, but without coaching appointments (and sackings), a top four place is a pipedream! Is top four place the genuine target for next season? IMO, the realistic targets should be something like: 2019/2020 season = minimum top 6 finish (qualify f...

Wouldn't be surprised if we have someone lined up to come in that should be starting at 8 either.
Regardless of Denton situation.
Could that be Mark Wilson?

I sympathise with him in exactly the same ways as Joe Marler sympathised with him yesterday.

Also, I hope he never represents the Leicester Tigers.

Bath Rugby are pleased to confirm that Rhys Priestland has signed a new two-year deal with the Club.
I thought he/they had confirmed he was leaving?

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 6

What we need at the moment is quiet. Let Geordan get on with the job, ensure continuity, have faith in what we have. It's going to take a few years for us to start to make an impact again. What we don't need is further instability. I would add the 'instability' of a first rate DOR. Personally, I th...

Going on current Fissler form - Ben Kay and Manu have liked Wilson on Twitter so he must have signed for us! :smt005

Re: Spencer banned for four weeks

I’ve just re-read this post taking out BFG’s pointless and inflammatory comments. I feel the main problem here is the inconsistency that the RFU are showing - throwing the book at someone who made a borderline red card tackle whilst having a relatively clean record from his past strikes me as being ...

Re: Wasps Vs Tigers

O’Conner is as important to us as Shields is to Wasps - possibly more so. The man is pure quality just can’t seem to string a few games together. I think Geordie mentioned taking Eastmond off early as a precaution so hopefully, with some intense physio, he’ll be back next week - the last bit is my o...

Re: The next New Head Coach / DOR?

This is Murphy’s gig to run with - if you bring anybody in it must be under him. We have to find out if he’s capable and there’s only one way to do that - just as we did with Deano and Cockers. Sounds like the game plan will change and the shackles will be off the coaches. I’m really looking forward...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part Deux

It makes me laugh, it really does! People just aren't happy with whoever we sign! We are bringing in an injury replacement for Genge, it's not going be a world class prop or a prop good enough to start at other Premiership clubs because if they are starters at other clubs, they will stay at that cl...
