Re: Tigers v Calvisano - Teams up!

Call me cynical... have they announced the team a day early to try sell some more tickets.... Sounds like a sensible idea when most of us were expecting the B team. Might persuade a few more fans to buy tickets, which would be good for the club. I support the club so I'm in favour of that... I'm no...

Didn't realise he had even been cited... just seen Harry Wells banned for two weeks. It just gets better :smt017
If he had to miss two weeks then these two weeks are the best to miss. Give Cam Jordan a go instead.

Re: Borthwick

RugbyInsideLine hinting that Borthwick to Tigers is off. Has anyone else anything? It’s a done deal, the players and staff have all been told. Due to start after the 6N. If that is the case, is it having an adverse effect on Murphy and Ford? Could it be an explanation as to our terrible chaotic sha...

Re: SIMON COHEN AND TOM SCOTT

Press reports at the time the potential sale was announced in June (e.g. Independent, Leicester Mercury, City Am) confirmed Tom Scotts 46% shareholding. Wasn't enquiring about the percentage of his shareholding, I was querying the valuation of his investment. You've said it cost him between £8-10m....

Re: SIMON COHEN AND TOM SCOTT

The Club has implicitly accepted this by the decision to sell. The problem is that the sale price of £60m, at a time when the club is failing, is much higher than ascribed to it when it was successful. At a value of £60m, Tom Scott’s 46% shareholding would be worth around £27m, a profit of c £18m o...

Re: Murphy coaches and relegation

Whatever Trevor, I still say the silence is deafening in my opinion, if others disagree that is more than their right. The feeling that people switch their phones off these days is very funny though Maybe you should try it then. If I'm going out for a day with the family I turn mine off and concent...

Re: What day this week will they announce Murphys sacking ?

If Murphy were to go who should the board be flying in by the end of the week. Presumably we aren't going to get someone from another AP club so we're looking at Borthwick or a coach working overseas. Is Borthwick the answer? Got a good reputation as a coach but is he the man to lead the club, does ...

Re: Murphy coaches and relegation

He is part of the problem not the solution. Just another Ex Tiger with a job for life. my point was he is one of the "rugby people" on the board, though to be fair for all we know he advised against appointing MOC and Geordan and was ignored I can assure you that Ben Kay was 1 of the 2 responsible ...

Re: Murphy coaches and relegation

No one in the right mind would want to work for this board in the toxic culture that they've allowed to thrive. I think we're stuck with Murphy until we are relegated which we almost inevitably will be. There's been too much emphasis on growing the corporate side of the business and not enough focu...

Re: Murphy coaches and relegation

We've repeatedly done the football thing and sacked the coaches with no plan of how to move forward. That is one of the reasons we are in this current mess. Another knee jerk reaction will do absolutely nothing. We have experienced coaches in place, it's not like there's a bunch of new coaches runn...

Re: Murphy coaches and relegation

According to Twitter Mike Ford is to take up the Head Coach role with Fiji. Not sure who this blokes agent is!! At least we won’t have to see him around Oval Park in any senior capacity. Rumours are he's in a list of possible appointees, there's a few French options as well due to the number of Fij...

Re: Murphy coaches and relegation

The steady decline has been going on since Cockers left. No the steady decline started whilst Cockers was still here. The decline was exacerbated after he left by the truly moronic decision to appoint Matt O'Connor a man who virtually destroyed every structure at the club. The massively optimistic ...

Re: Murphy coaches and relegation

We have experienced coaches in place, it's not like there's a bunch of new coaches running the team. They're really, really bad though, it's not knee jerk if the person getting heaved can't function in their role. I'm not denying that we may need to make a change in saying that firing Murphy and po...

I'm prepared to believe Mike Ford could be interim Head Coach tomorrow.
Why? Promote the attack coach after what we've done in attack this season.
