Re: Leicester Tigers 2016/17 Squad/Transfers/Contract thread

Confirmed here- http://www.newcastlefalcons.co.uk/news/ ... le-falcons

Suspect this means we may well see two sevens in the backrow fairly often next season- good news for Will Evans' prospects of game time as well.

Re: Team for Stade?

Well it's the middle of the week and we've not got a thread yet about the potential starting team/squad for Sunday. Cockers said he would pick his best team, so here goes; 1. Ayerza 2. Youngs 3. Cole 4. Kitchener 5. Fitzgerald 6. Croft 7. McCaffrey 8. Pearce 9. Youngs 10.Burns 11.Goneva 12.Smith 13...

Re: 2015/16 Squad/Contracts/Rumours Thread Part 2

Four sets of brilliant news yesterday- the starting backline and squad depth in the backs is going to be brilliant next year! And it may be a bit like Sarries for my liking but I am enjoying the #MagicMondays... To think that Mat Tait could well be on the bench when all the options are fit and avail...

Re: Teams up v Saints

I'm not quite sure what Freddie could have done about their three trys :smt017 . Two were from driving lineouts and one was from a dropped ball by OTY which resulted in North running in from 80m. Freddie nailed three vital penalties which won us the game (two were long range and one was high pressu...

Re: Teams up v Saints

Best 20 minutes of the season followed by 55 very mediocre minutes but at least the game was won! A deserved MOTM for McCaffrey, I also think Croft is looking better whenever he plays. Honourable too for Smith, Youngs x. 2, De Chaves and Fitzgerald. It was slightly concerning how things regressed wh...

Re: Treviso.

IMO (Provided Logo is added to the squad): Logo, Youngs, Balmain De Chaves (as others has said he deserves it after Sat), Kitchener Croft, Pearce, McCaffrey (although LM will need a rest soon- think he is the only player to have appeared in every game!!) Harrison, Burns Smith, Manu Thompstone, Tait,...

Re: Team for Sarries

Decent looking side, hugely impressive bench- if we can be within 5-10 points with 30 minutes to go then an LBP is definitely achieveable but unlikely. As others have said season is a marathon not a sprint and as long as Tigers beat Saints next week and get a home QF in Europe then the decision is v...

Re: Team for Sarries

Smith confirmed as injured in the Merc (http://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/Locks ... story.html). Would be nice to see Catchpole/ Roberts at 12 but I would be very surprised if it wasn't Bai.

Re: 2015/16 Squad/Contracts/Rumours Thread Part 2

My cousin who used to play with Sam Harrison and others in the academy, had a certain second row captain round his house for Christmas drinks last week. He mentioned that we are close to signing JP Pietersen for next season... Anyone else heard this? Have not heard it but would certainly make sense...

Re: Team for Boxing Day

Really like the look of that side, great to see Logo and Tait back! Excited to see Pearce and Fonua and what a bench!!

Maybe I'm over confident but would be disappointed if Tigers didn't get the full 5 points!! :smt027 :smt027 :smt027

Re: Teams up v Munster

Brilliant win, bits to work on in the performance but I agree with Cockers that Munster were much better than last week! Huge performances from McCaffrey, Slater and Smith, Slater will play himself into the England side playing like that and, dare I say it, if Smith were at Sarries he would be in th...

Re: Team for Boxing Day

I'd like to see as much rotation as possible vs. Falcons before targetting wins vs. Sarries and Saints- there can then be some rotation for Treviso which should keep the squad relatively fresh! Hard to pick a side with uncertainty over injuries etc. but I'd go for: Aguero, Thacker, Balmain De Chaves...
