Re: PRC Round 4 - Tigers vs Saints

12,000 at best . Very mixed display from Tigers - some players very good , some very poor indeed . Crowd was the smallest I’ve seen in many years for a local derby. I was particularly surprised to see relatively few Saints fans. I can only think they expected a loss and didn’t bother making the tri...

Re: Is Boladau worth keeping long-term?

Boladau has a touch of class. If his strength and conditioning is peak he'd be a good addition. Boladau isn't too old. Guy Thompson is 32 and has more all round then any youngster. Class is class. The question is long term. Extending his loan until the end of the season might be an option. Long ter...

Re: Is Boladau worth keeping long-term?

At 33 he's not getting any younger and we have a number of young players developing out on loan.

Re: PRC Round 4 - Tigers vs Saints

It must be massively difficult to ref a game these days as a rookie, at that level, without the safety blanket of a TMO looking specifically for things like high tackles TMO has arguably become important than the assistant refs in the professional game As the game wasn't televised there would have ...

Re: PRC Round 4 - Tigers vs Saints

White has nowhere near the potential of Simmons. England under 20s captain Ben White, youngest ever Tigers debutant has less potential than a fullback who was converted to 9 because he was judged to small to make it at 15. Now I really like Simmons as a player, he's just a natural footballer and co...

Re: Canada Embarrassing?

Just thought I’d look at the England squad and those that looking at their surnames could possibly have been poached from other smaller nations. Billy V born in Australia, moved to UK as a small child. Mako V born in New Zealand moved to UK as a small child Maro Itoje born in London Joe Cokanasiga ...

Re: PRC Round 4 - Tigers vs Saints

I do worry about Simmons lack of game time so far. Clearly White and Harrison are preferred over him. He'll probably have to leave to continue his career at this rate, which would be a great shame as he's very talented . More so than White IMO! Given his injury issues we don't know whether he's had...

Re: PRC Round 4 - Tigers vs Saints

Close to the strongest team Saints could put out. Plenty of strength on the bench as well. Should be a really tough game. Ideal league preparation and we can start to rebuild that fortress reputation with a win in this one.

Re: PRC Round 4 - Tigers vs Saints

We could do but Saints are in a need of a win therefore I’m predicting will name a strong outfit tomorrow. We've been building up through the PRC games. I'd expect us to go strong as well. As we're at Welford Road we should be going all guns blazing. Every game at Welford Road should be taken serio...

Re: Is Lavanini going to be a liability?

Considering the number of completely needless penalties we conceded last season I'm not worried about Lavanini coming in and throwing his weight around. I don't mind our pack picking up the occasional yellow of it's part out bringing back our hard edge. Obviously no one wants regular yellow cards an...

Re: Leicester Tigers Academy thread - 2019/20

I'd say from the little I've seen Ilione looks a real mobile beast. I'm sure he's probably penciled in the succession plan already. Didn't he play a bit at lock and captain England under 18s in the summer as well? Great to see the academy churning out players at such a rate. Have we any prospective ...

Re: George Ford

Sale have Robert du Preez and McGinty. If McGinty decides to head to the US Pro League then they might come in for Ford. Wasps will probably see Gopperth retire and another season of poor form from Sopoaga who is rumoured to be unhappy could see them cut that deal short and go for Ford. With his Eng...

Re: Is Lavanini going to be a liability?

Yes, otherwise I wouldn't of said so. More force and he's a bigger lump which always seems to draw the attention. I think Francis made less effort to dip into the tackle. He was a very lucky boy with the citing commission. I doubt Lavanini will have any such luck. I worry about double standards, Ma...

Re: PRC Round 4 - Tigers vs Saints

The red could be debated all day, but TPN didn’t need to make the referee and AR have to make a decision. Foolish. I don’t suppose that you have ever made a mistake in your job :smt003 I expect a lot of players are going to be making this mistake. Particularly those that have been in the game longe...
