Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Episode 3 The revenge of the Contracts.

The prospect of Huw Jones doesn't excite me, unless he's a cheap option these days.

Exeter Chiefs

Some of the more avid news readers amongst us may have noticed the battle between fans of Exeter Chiefs about whether their branding is racist or cultural appropriation or not. I don't really know the answer to that, or particularly care, but I have always considered the native American branding to ...

Re: Finishing this season

Nadolo needs to stay on the wing at the moment, Potter is not a ready made Premiership starter for me - give him time.

I would probably go for Worth to start at 15 with Steward on the bench. Again, ease him in and let him adjust before taking off the training wheels. Henry is an option too.

Re: THANK YOU

Hugely difficult time for everyone at the club, I'm sure, from Chairman to cleaners. Thank you to all of them for their commitment and for keeping the club going.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

All very good news, but still a few key questions to be answered - Taufua & potential new players. The important thing though is that we know we are going into the remainder of the season with a decent core of players and that some incredibly talented and committed players are now signed up long ter...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

36 was always overrated by Tigers fans. A good player but would never have won England caps were it not for the lack of talent at that time. Fixed it for you all :smt002 It's nice to see that even after all these years a 36 post can still elicit so much emotion. Good player, but nothing special. Lo...

Re: Other clubs...

I believe the players leaving Sale are those who were out of contract and were set to leave the club regardless of covid or any reduced salaries.

Who knows what will happen with the rest.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

Not sure I agree with some of the comments re Cocker and M.O.C years, a lot of young players came through at that time including Manu, for me the main problems started when Anthony Allen and Manu both got major injuries at the same time, Billy Twelvetrees had already decided that he was behind them...

Re: Interviews - LTTV by Bondi

One of the main objectives of an interviewer is to help the interviewee answer the questions. It’s not about being Jeremy Paxman. Bondi’s style did nothing to help Andrea give clear answers. Borthwick was far more prepared and gave direct answers because he has been given training on how to face an...

Kremer, Veainu and Grobler is some top signings for Stade.
Maybe they won't finish bottom next season!

Does anyone know if the French season is going to be completed? If not are Stade relegated?
I understood the season would not be finished but there would be no relegation
Thanks!

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

Harry Wells extends his contract with the club - important re-signing. Future captain material imo. Very good re-signing, Wells has improved a lot over the last couple of seasons and never lets the team down. Future captain might be a bit of a stretch, he's nearly 27 and has never been first choice...
