Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Lord of the Mauls

I think the Garrryowen was just, in RL terms an 'up and under'. The spiral bomb seems another level of unpleasantness for the full back. I hope that George practices with Freddie S so that Freddie learns to deal with them. If he can kick 'em as well - great!
Actually, all the full backs.

Re: Tigers vs Quins - 05th December 2021 - 3-00pm

Mol2 I think we deliberately didn't commit backs into the maul incase Quins turned us over and attacked. As you say in several previous games we did that with some success, a case of hedging bets I reckon? By not committing backs though there is more likelihood of the maul being stopped - it's a bi...

Re: Wasps are not welcome in Coventry

There is talk on there about the drop-off in attendance some of which is due to poor performance but, surely, some of it must be that, in theatrical parlance, they 'papered the house' i.e. gave away free tickets which has now stopped.

Re: Bordeaux away

We decided not to go as well - and even canceled our Xmas trip to Cyprus - credit to Easyjet holidays - full refund as a credit towards a future holiday and we have already spent it and booked to go in May. We sent our hotel the tickets as we had booked direct with them and they were brilliant. Ver...

Re: Progress under Borthwick 2021/22

Article in today's Times quoting Ellis Genge headlined "Borthwick is inspiring us". In part it reads: "He's got his morals and stuff, which we all really respect, but he's just one of the hardest workers I've met. ... I respect the bloke so much for the stuff he does behind the scenes and he never w...

Re: Progress under Borthwick 2021/22

I've just been watching "Rugby Tonight" 24hrs late on BT. L Dallaglio has just spent 5 minutes praising Tigers. I'm off for a lie down.

Quote: " Rotation would be ideal - maybe do a block of 3-4 matches then mix it up.

Re: Wasps are not welcome in Coventry

I've not been to the CBS but it is clearly Coventry City's football stadium - the blue seats, the absence of any Wasps' branding, and no club shop apparently so it is easy to see why CFC fans are miffed. Looks like their ground but...er, it's not, you don't own it.
