Re: Bath vs. Tigers - Sat 25 Jan 15:00

I would have thought it would go without saying that whatever you do, you need to do it well. No we're not very good at kicking and chasing, correct. So we should try to run it from our own 22 because... we're really good at that?! Yes! We’ve been kicking badly and chasing poorly for a very long ti...

Re: Sam Harrisons last game

Well let's hope he is selected at 9 & as captain, he is & always will be a true tiger. Can I be selected as well please? I’ve always been a true tiger, 45 years a season ticket holder, following The club home, away in Europe, buying the latest shirt, etc. In case you haven’t been following this for...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 2

I disagree, Youngs is part of the problem and needs booting asap. +1, such a shame Sam is off, proper Tiger! That’s ok it’s your opinion, just as long as you guys accept that its exactly that your opinion and opinions vary. In particular renowned England coaches who have seen fit to make BY the mos...

Re: Telusa Veainu

BFG you are also watching a different game to me. Whilst I agree White is still in my opinion just behind Sam he is improving fast and has played well many times, his cross field kick to May at Kingston Park was brilliant spoiled only by Ellis Genge's block in the Falcons 15. White is a young playe...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 6

Firstly, it's an unsubstantiated rumour. Secondly, there's a big difference between "I want out" and "I'd like to go early but, if I can't, I totally understand and I'll fully commit when selected" so - it's wrong to criticize without knowing the context. Thirdly, he has 4 games left to determine w...

Re: Proof if proof were needed

So everything is all open and above board? Come on guys apply some logic! Right now we are trying desperately to hang on to Manu Tuilagi while being told we are limited by the cap. And it won't be long before we are trying to hang on to Ellis Genge. As soon as one of our star players contract is up ...

Proof if proof were needed

[email protected] is at Allianz Park where @Saracens are missing six England players but have still named 10 internationals.

plus absence of Liam Williams and Jacques Burger, Sean Maitland, Marcello Bosch et all.

Re: Gordon Banks OBE R.I.P.

Gordon Banks was the reason I swapped allegiance/passion from football and Leicester City to Rugby and Leicester Tigers. Until 1967 I followed the City everywhere home and away, Banks was my hero. To accommodate Peter Shilton Leicester City released him to Stoke for £50 000, a world cup winner and u...

Re: Bristol v Tigers

Ok finally I have been driven to despair and feel the need to get something off my chest. I was at the game yesterday pulling my hair out. Despite being a Tigers supporter for over 40 years I don't profess to be a Rugby expert, because I have neither played the game at a good level nor officiated it...

Re: Ben Kay on Rugby Tonight

Re: Tudor Thomas RIP

A sad loss, many happy memories of a faithful servant to the club.

Hopefully the spirit of Tudor will live on in these days of a money driven business, we all want success but at what cost? Hopefully not the loss of everything that Tudor stood for.

Condolences to all his family.
