Re: EPCR Semi finals

I think more than that is the footwork of the whole back line. It just creates carnage in defence and allows Sexton to wrap around and all of a sudden they have more bodies on whatever side they’re attacking. Hard to think of how you stop it. The only thing would be if you have a rainy day and it’s...

Re: EPCR Semi finals

Sounds like an obvious thing to say but the key to this quick ball is Gibson Park. He never gets involved in the ruck, that’s everyone else’s job, he is just there to get the ball away, and his cheat lines are sensational I think more than that is the footwork of the whole back line. It just create...

Sadly I cant see how we can afford to keep Moroni with all those new 3/4 signings. :smt017

I think Aled's had a transfer/promotion out of Great Glen. :smt048 You’ve lost me I’m afraid :smt017 Sorry fentiger, i forgot not all our supporters are local, Aled has moved home, out of our village, he used to live in Harry Thackar's house but that's now up for sale. Don't think hes gone far away...

Re: Decisions Decisions

Sorry to disagree but we have scored a hatful of tries this season by kicking to the corner so no problem there. Leinster were a step up from any other team we have played to date and disrupted our line out and maul. Regarding price of tickets Tigers have lost a shedload of money in the last two ye...

Re: Tigers v Leinster (H) - Saturday 07th May 2022 - 5-30pm KO

The salary cap is a choice made by the clubs. The question has to be as to whether it is worth playing in Europe given this voluntary handicap. If Wales drop to 3 regions then we will have a situation where the games are against the mega bucks French sides and the Wales and Irish training squads. A...

Re: Tigers v Leinster (H) - Saturday 07th May 2022 - 5-30pm KO

Maybe the atmosphere was better not only because what was at stake but the travelling support makes the fans wake up and think we’re not being out shouted in our own back yard . . I often think that the crowd is far too quite and take it all for granted. Also maybe there is an element, dare I say i...

Re: Tigers v Leinster (H) - Saturday 07th May 2022 - 5-30pm KO

Some clubs grade their matches which is reflected in ticket prices. Last nights game was a top grade game and the pricing was justified in my opininion....a top class tournament semi final with top players on both sides I think our prices were pro-rata to other clubs, fair in my opinion, we went to...

Slight puzzle for me, Wednesday is day off but I thought players had to take it easy, 2 players booked golf tee time today.

Interesting team selections (and comments) here https://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/sport/rugby/rugby-news/leicester-tigers-v-leinster-heineken-7036473 I am not sure I agree with any of them (!), but what I *DO* like is in spite of some injuries, there are STILL GOOD OPTIONS for selection There's al...

Almost certainly you will be arriving from wherever, airport etc, by train into Leicester, as others have posted, there's plenty to eat & drink in Leicester, curries everywhere. Also depends how long you are stopping but remember its an evening kick off and there's 2 hours of live music under th...

Re: QF tickets

Don't forget the price from Leinster could be prohibitive. Late after noon kick off' plane fare plus most probable hotel accommodation etc. drinks and other food, makes a very expensive weekend for the Irish. Away trips are very expensive, our 2 to Clermont came to nearly £1000, we have supporters ...
