Re: Dave Denton Announces Retirement

I guess we all expected this announcement, I feel very sorry for the guy but he has made a wise decision, long term health is more important than any short term rugby success. Good luck David and all the best for the future.

Re: PRC Round 1 - Warriors vs Tigers

Nice to see people mentioning so many young players, a little surprised how many have apparently seen the young guys play. Obviously lads aged 18 or 19 are not the complete article but given game time with the more experienced players will improve their game and some possibly only a few will develop...

Re: Jordan Taufua

Success in the European Challenge Trophy is a means of qualifying for the Champions Cup the following season so should be taken seriously, in fact very seriously.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 1

I am impressed by the skill of JP14 in creating that video however I do think the conclusions particulrly the one drawn by Traveller are a little harsh. In life we all make decisons that we come to regret. For Toomua it is now apparent that he thought his regular international career over, I doubt h...

Re: Youngs injured in pub brawl

I suggest people actually read the article before commenting, the version I read stated that a Tiger's player (Bateman) was punched and that no Tigers player retaliated, it also said that glasses were thrown but not that it was our boys doing the throwing. I remember that when Deano took over a disu...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 1

There is nothing in the article to suggest that Fred is on loan but I think Fred is possibly a late developer needing regular game time. I believe that it is very possible that in a couple of years young Fred will be a much improved player at eight and could well be of Premiership standard. Whether ...

Re: New Kit

Not sure the officers that are frustrated by the Kitbag/Fanatics contract were actually in situ when the contract was signed and agreed.

Re: Are we still a family club.

Of course the Leicester Football Club PLC . is a business and various revenue streams should be exploited but I believe such events as meeting the new players coupled with autograph opportunities for the kids should be free or at a minimal cost to a family. RagingBull says that being a business thin...

Are we still a family club.

A few years back Tudor Thomas used to organise a " Meet the New Players " evening with a Q & A. Then it got taken over by the clubs marketing people and a small charge was made but a plate of chili and rice os something similar was included. Now I see it is an adults only cocktail evening with a £30...

Re: World Cup players

Last season is behind us, the reasons for it are many and we as fans know what we know and believe what we believe, we all have our own opinions. Forget what happened in the past we can't change it, look forward to the future only start to moan when we have something else to moan about.

Re: England WC squad

I am pretty sure I have seen Marler playing at tighthead. I too am surprised Heinz goes as one of only two 9's, not sure I agree with introducing a 32 year old at this stage it is hardly building for the future. We will never be better than the All Blacks if we select players that are only here beca...

Re: New Kit

I agree with BFG on the whole, it sounds good one kit to last two years, unfortunately with so many sponsors on the garment it would not always be easy to contract them all for the same two years. Even if we did a home kit every year with say the away kit which gets less usage every two years, it sh...
