Re: Freddie Burns coming back to Tigers?

Yes Ford,Burns,Henry makes way more sense than Ford,Burns,Bonilla Agreed but apparently Henry is off at the end of the season and a new contract is being discussed with Bonilla, so most likely it will be Ford, Burns and Bonilla, if Burns were to re-join. Pretty vague rumour with Henry allegedly unh...

Oldest son I think. A tighthead though.

Re: Paolo Odogwu

Paolo Odogwu always impressed me in the few games he played for us and thoroughly deserves his call up. As a youngster with us he produced a couple of excellent turn overs and had the strength of Manu but also had(has) a side step off each foot!Hope he gets a chance to impress at the next level. I’...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

Real shame that we can’t keep him but can understand from his perspective as presumably more money and better climate Lots of respect for him - he's a professional sportsman who puts his heart, body and soul into whoever he's playing for. We wouldn't have got him in the first place if someone else ...

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2020-21

I know a Quins STH that very much as his ear to the ground. Tells me it was a bolt of the blue and didn't see it coming. Bolt from the blue? There's been rumours for about a week he's going to be the new Wales defence coach. They need one! Looks to me like they are definitely missing Edwards more t...

The Bath confirmation of Tian Schoeman paves the way for the departure of Rhys Priestland - his most likely destination being Cardiff if rumours are to be believed .
Considering Priestland is their only real experienced flyhalf they could still do with replacing him.

Re: Who’s your pick for Lions 2021

Sorry, but it’s way too soon. Steward is doing a decent job of nailing the 15 shirt at Tigers. He’s focusing on that I’m sure and I whilst there’s an outside chance of him making the wider England squad, I think it will be a while until he breaks through. Despite doing well vs Watson etc, he’s behi...

Unsubstantiated rumours regarding Quins.

Scott Baldwin to Worcester
Chris Ashton to Worcester
Mike Brown to Falcons

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2020-21

I would be gob smacked if Manu is even being considered for the Lions. There are many better options in the centers than him and far less injury-prone. In his day, he is one of the best in the world but his day has gone and many would argue went several years ago. I also think it is a nonsense ques...

Re: Diamond leaves Sale! - Alex Sanderson takes over!

My only question is just how much did he know about the cheating going on a Sarries?I guess we will never know so for now he has the benefit of the doubt. Hope the existing coaching team get to stay. Give it a rest with the cheating thing. Sarries got what they deserved, demotion and a record break...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

Personally I would rather target a TH, I prefer Leatigaga at LH. Agreed. Leatigaga doesn't seem as good at scrum time when covering tighthead. We need to consider the future as well, Cole has been excellent for years and played a lot of games. In many ways we've been spoilt by his longevity and rel...
