Re: New Kit

1. Leave it until after all the other clubs, when people are a bit fed up waiting and no longer particularly care one way or another. 2. Announce it, and strike while the iron is hot by ensuring that people can't buy, or even pre-order for another month. Another defeat snatched from the jaws of vict...

Re: New Kit

Several shades of green have been used. A difficulty I have with the current kit green is that beyond the h/w line it looks black. And beyond the far 22m line it all blends with the background of the supporters, adverts, etc. I can’t believe I’m alone. A more distinct green might make distinguishing...

Re: New Kit

The issue is not a deal with Kukri or not, but the deal with Kitbag, in whose hands matters of Tigers kit lies and who therefore have control over which manufacturer will supply kit and over what period, the Club having some but not overriding input. The Club is looking forward to getting back contr...

Re: Ground development

In my experience of builders, work actually begins a month, or two, or three later than the date you think. The summer date will be the 'taking possession of the site'.

Re: Axial Loading

As an old, if not brilliant prop... In the old days, front rows used to more or less grasp onto and fold into one another in one action. Certainly at my level scrummaging was higher off the deck than nowadays. My Qn is: With the typical pause between the Bind and Set, how long are props’ arms expect...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

Peter Tom interview in The Daily Wail: “It has been a pretty terrible two years on the pitch, we have not been disadvantaged by finances, but have made some mistakes and have deserved a kicking as a board at times.” And how many people accused those of us who said it at the time of disloyalty and no...

Dream on they haven't done sports for years... why do you think Tigers pulled out in the first place?
Yes I know. The tone of voice doesn't always come across in the typed word.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 7

Stories coming out of Wales are they haven’t been impressed with him. So maybe there is potential they could release him. Unimpressed with him or not, if Blommjites is under a contract, I doubt very much if he would be released if there's potential for money to be made in buying out a contract. I a...

Re: Smithy

A sad day, but perhaps not too surprising as Matt has got to 'that sort of age'. What a great and loyal career! 14 years, 227 games, 30 tries, with Dosser the first dad/son to make 100 and 200 appearances, Play Offs, Finals, 3x Prem winning team member, a memorable centre partnership with Ant Allen,...

Re: New coaching structure?

For credibility’s sake, Leicester Tigers cannot be seen to lose/sack yet another DOR/HC. The present HC announcing a coaching restructure in fact allows the Club to do some revolutionary rather than evolutionary changes. Murphy will then be judged at the end of next season.

My issue with Kay sitting on the board is that he doesn't appear to be very good at the role.
