Re: Who’s your pick for Lions 2021

Done very little wrong? He was 2 botched Beale kicks away from losing the series to a poor Oz team and drew one v a NZ team thanks to Barretts awful kicking,SBW red card and a terrible refereeing decision with Owen's blatant offside. The Lions praise for me is way OTT! You can say that about any si...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

I still think we have a huge void at 12, Eastmond and Reid are decent benchers but not the physical playmaker we need to compete at the top level to either go themselves or cleverly distribute or to shore up the defence in that channel. The pack are looking very good! Totally agree. Historically we...

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

My issue is the flat 25%, yes it is in theory fair, but 25% of not a lot isn't great. Not all of Tigers Employees earn marque salaries. There is no simple answer to this, but I do think the RPA aren't being terribly bright about this. One thing this does show is the vulnerability of being effective...

Re: Ealing threatening legal action

They'll be competition rules that they signed up to thay govern matches that can't be played. Zero chance of any legal action being successful.

Re: Will games get cancelled?

There's a lot of panicking at the moment. No one has died under 50 and no one has died without underlying health issues, mainly kidney and heart. Its going to be bad but the number of undiagnosed cases is astronomical. Remember the UK is only testing suspected cases when they are significantly ill. ...

Re: Will games get cancelled?

There are set competition rules for any games that are not played - someone can dig them out if they really want to. It will be unsatisfactory for everyone involved if no other game gets played this season but talk of Sarries escaping relegation is completely made up.

Re: May, Kalamafoni and McPhillps extended injuries

For differing reasons though based on the hearsay,conjecture and rumor that has been around recently would like to see at least one more appearance (at least) in a Leicester shirt from both Kalamafoni and May - if only for a proper farewell and to say thanks... There will undoubtedly be disruption ...

Re: England v Wales

It was a red card all day long, the right arm is never going to be used whatever height that North is, and the onus is on the tackler as to where to other players head is under the regulations. That being said, the laws of the game seem to be favouring the use of red cards when yellow would easily s...

Re: Coronavirus: Sarries know best!

Let's be clear, the issue isn't with the medical advice given and who should be more cautious etc.

The issue here is with using any excuse to knock Sarries whether it's relevant to the salary cap issue or not.

"No, the RFU aren't following the advice. They are being over cautious, probably because the hit of canceling an international game is much worse than a league game. But don't let that stop you from bashing Sarries at any opportunity for no reason." You make no sense. If the RFU was being overcauti...

Re: Murphy's "vision".

What exactly would you do? Replace Murphy as coach? Oh wait, the club have already done that, they're just waiting for the new guy to serve his notice period.

Don't pretend that running any sports team is like running a normal business.

Re: Murphy's "vision".

Seems like a lot of overreacting on here. Club and GM both state that day to day coaching is not GM's strong point. Club find and sign what the majority of rugby fans feel is a very good coach on the up to take over the coaching team. Players etc sing GM's praises when it comes to vision etc and fan...

Re: England v Ireland

It's not bias, it's recognition of how well the opposition have played to win. With England it's always we played poorly and this or that didn't go to plan or it's an away match so a loss is to be expected and never an acceptance that the opponents were just better. France have changed and been bet...
