Great win and great performance. But daly is not a full back. Young’s has been class. Ford has been controlling and Cole solid. Love it. What was the Aussie TMO on about??
One eyed!

Dave Denton Announces Retirement

I thought that this deserved a thread of its own, not just buried in the contracts thread.

According to today's LM https://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/spor ... id-3322886 Dave Denton has retired.
Sad, but the right decision

No, its that Elitism at work again, Marler must have gone to a Public School and Genge didn't.
If you think that Marler went to a public school, you, obviously haven't heard him speak! According to Wikipedia, he went to Heathfield Community College in Sussex!

Re: Ben youngs

In my opinion a lot to do with the timing and presentation of the ball by the forwards to the scrum half. Also some days a kick goes right or bounces right other days it doesn't, the margin between a great kick and a bad kick is sometimes a matter of a couple of inches or the luck of the bounce. On...

Re: Ben youngs

Nearly every one of his kicks were right where they needed to be tonight, those that were for chasing were obtainable (and were reached by chasers tonight) - I rarely see that achieved with the frequency of tonight in a Tigers shirt hence "Never so accurate". I am a Ben Youngs supporter, don't want...

Re: Ben youngs

One of the reasons why Lenny looks so good for England, and, to some, less so, for Tigers, may have something to do with the way England followed up his box kicks fast, and put pressure on the Irish. Jonny May was doing it the entire match, and it was causing havok with the opposition. For whatever ...

Re: Cohen, Glynn, to be sacked?

As usual, a lot of uninformed rubbish is being spouted on here. First question, as a PLC, who has the power to hire and fire? It is usually delegated to the MD (or Chief Exec) by the Board Second question, is the company set up so that the MD CANNOT be sacked? Third question. If not, has the Chairma...

Re: Haskell leaving Wasps

I was never a fan of Lol, because he got under everybody's skin on the pitch, and Haskell learned that from him. We have been missing someone like that for years, so, if we could get him for the right price, I would welcome Haskell both as a leader, and someone who will get under the skin of the opp...
