Re: Montpellier’s Form - Challenge Cup Final chat

We're very lucky to have a player as good as Wiese at the club, and to have such talented youngsters as Martin and Steward with a Head Coach who seems to know exactly how to manage them. Things have not looked so bright for many years! Very good point about Sale and physicality, it will be a good me...

Re: Montpellier’s Form - Challenge Cup Final chat

I think we're being a bit harsh on Wiese if we're suggesting he has been found out. I haven't seen his stats from the Ulster game but I'd bet they were still very impressive. He is a brilliant player who has been a key part of the improvement this season and is exactly the number 8 I have been prayi...

Re: Warren Gatland?!

I struggle to come up with a stronger alternative who would be available and interested - especially if he is expected to be from British Isles. With everything that is going on at the moment, it doesn't hurt to have someone in charge who is familiar with the setup and has previously worked with man...

Re: American Investors for Tigers?

Obviously a glass half empty man. If you think that the rugby fraternity is full of selfish self serving people suggest you are mixing with the wrong crowd. The fact that you think of a rugby as a "fraternity" tells me everything I need to know. Did you know that women are allowed to play rugby now...

Re: Montpellier’s Form - Challenge Cup Final chat

Both teams capable of some impressive rugby, but equally both are capable of having a poor 40 minutes.

Looking forward to a really close final :smt023

Re: American Investors for Tigers?

I'm not sure how the prospect of an unnamed American investor is a negative, unless we're dealing in xenophobia and general American stereotypes. We've all seen the way this club treats people, and the way this sport treats competitiveness and inclusivity. Amateur values and meritocracy left rugby m...

Re: Tigers on Loan Watch

Good to hear Browning is doing well, sounds like a great prospect. I think Worth, Olowofela and Lewis really need to shine on loan if they're going to get another chance at Tigers, given the amount of game time they have already had. A hattrick for Olowofela is a pretty good start for him, hopefully...

Re: Jake Kerr - released from contract

The brutality of sport that enables a man barely into his twenties to buy a house. Who would be a professional sportsperson, eh? Pretty sure he'll find a new club fairly quickly, he's just been a bit unlucky with Youngs being revitalised, Montoya arriving early and Clare being much better than was p...

Re: Away vs Bath 18th April

If we're 2 tries behind with 10 minutes to go, I'm not sure the odds of us snatching the win are very high, regardless of who our bench 9 is. If it's a tight game then RW is a very good person to bring on. Plan A, plan B, plan Z? To be honest, we probably need to perfect Plan A before we worry about...

Re: Steve Borthwick - Lions

Good call. While I wouldn't begrudge him the opportunity, this sends a good message to everyone else at the club.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE VI: The Return of the Burns

Sounds like an astute signing. Yes international HC to club Attack/Backs Coach is in theory a step down, but there's approximately zero chance of him achieving anything at Italy - how does it enhance his career to lead a team to 5 defeats once every year plus a few other meaningless matches? On the ...

Re: 6 NATIONS 2021

Anyone else catch Pivac on the Good, the Bad and the Rugby podcast ? Certainly quashed any of the thoughts I had about him. Clearly tough and uncompromising, fearless and direct, he set out his roadmap clearly in the interview process, which seemed to lean towards him wanting to trial some things d...

I doubt Borthwick will view this as a "free shot".
I doubt he has ever treated any match as a free shot.

Re: Tigers vs Falcons - 28th March 2021 at 15:00

If it is another two weeks that's crazy - you would have to start wondering if it's worth employing England internationals. At the beginning of the season it was as OakhamTiger describes, two weeks rest with their clubs. I'd be surprised if it changed mid season. You would expect the Premiership wo...
