Re: Freddie Steward

I was there for that too, and I remember the tigers fans behind the posts erupting when the kick was good. Also a churlish commentator (Cleary, I think, or I’d like to think Stephen Jones) saying that he nicked a couple of yards, whereas it was quite clear from the tv footage that he actually took t...

Re: Freddie Steward

Is it just me, or is there a bit of a Stimpson vibe about Steward? Just reminds me of a young, raw, undeveloped version. Let’s hope things come on well.

"the game Vs Northampton this Sunday (13/9/20) has no more or less significance than any other since the restart."


Ah, the emotional numbness of restart rugby, where nothing means anything anymore.
If ring fencing comes, this will become the norm for the bottom end of the league.

Re: Team for Exeter

Leicester Tigers will take part in the competition-wide acknowledgement of Rugby Against Racism ahead of kick-off. The matchday squad will, as one, take a knee during the period allocated ahead of the match getting underway. Well that's me gone as a supporter then. I'm against racism but I won't su...

As Pirelli would say, power is nothing without control. If we can establish a bit of a grip on games, the power we have will be enough.

If we have to do this, I’d prefer to keep it to 12 teams, no promotion from here on, why increase the risk of player burn out?

Duncan McRae and Clark should have been prosecuted. Also remember Schalk Burger gouging Fitzgerald amongst many other sins.

No prizes for making the link between those 3.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

And it could all count for nothing next year. Probably. The deal that was ready baked and could be unveiled on day one is no where to be seen so it could well be no deal and a free for all. I would expect the PRL and the RFU to try and maintain the current rules as much as possible though. There's ...

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

Personally, if I was given a choice between keeping Manu or Taufua I reckon I’d go for Taufua. Available all year, aggressive in all parts of the game, a great jackal and a real competitor. Happy days....

Sorry to be a bit dim but how do you know if you have latest version of the App? Does it auto update?
If your app shows Tom Youngs on the front page, it's the current one. If Taufua, you need to update.
