Re: The Play Offs...

The hand of Back was against the Scarlets. That’s at least like confusing Tigers with Saints. They’d love you for that! 😂 Munster, actually. They were in red though. Hahaha thanks. At least I’ve not totally lost the plot. With the mention of a Welsh team, all I could picture was opponents in red! I...

Re: The Play Offs...

Very surprised but delighted to see karma come back to bite Pat Lam after such a short amount of time. Usually it takes a bit longer - the 16 man Ospreys incident was about 7 years after the Hand of Back! On field stuff like hands in the ruck, offsides etc I don’t mind - all sides try it - but the ...

Congrats JvP!!!! :smt038

Cap’n Jack!
If JVP wasn't already quite catchy, "Cap'n Jack" would surely lead to the nickname of Sparrow.

given the feelings towards the Star wars sequels I'm feeling a move is in order to another world.
In my head, Episodes 8 & 9 don’t exist anyway…
Episode VII. The Force Awakens does seem appropriate though!

Or The Forwards Awaken?

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

I hope that whatever our wings position is coming into next season we have enough quality to play Murimurivalu at 15. None of this starting a 10 at 15. Yes as a bench option. Actually I prefer him on the wing. Gives him more freedom to get involved. Particularly in our system where the left wing te...

Pivac has resisted picking Reffell just to keep him eligible for Wales. BBC sport app.

Of course, it helps that Tommy considers himself Welsh, so can be left out on a long line. Tommy might be disappointed though

Re: Bristols bloodgate?

No he's injured.. but it says it was a technical sub, no he's injured.. he's definitely injured... what's that? we will be down to 13 and have to lose another player? No he's fine, technical sub honestly Sir! Disgraceful.. as was the skirmish after the whistle.. :smt011 Perfect description of event...

Re: Forward passes

All this O level physics is simple enough, and we’ve heard it time and again. It’s not difficult, but I object to it because it’s an excuse for poor technique and causes all these arguments in the first place!! Forward means Forward, relative to the pitch, not the passing player, not to the receivin...

Re: Forward passes

Some forward passes do get missed but some I have called myself, on review, clearly left the hands backwards. Don't forget that a player running at pace and passing the ball slightly backwards will result in the ball travelling forward to the receiver. This is not deemed to be a forward pass . Simp...

Re: Montpellier’s Form - Challenge Cup Final chat

Getting off topic here, but Tigers were intending to grow their own women’s team, without poaching from Loughborough, prior to pandemic. No great surprise that plans have had to be put on hold. I expect it is still a goal though.

Tigers are now favourites with Betfair at 4/5
Montpelier are 11/10
Draw at 22/1

Handicap betting for Tigers at minus 1 point
I assume that’s at 80 minutes, not final result!

Re: Montpellier’s Form - Challenge Cup Final chat

Nor mine, but we must trust in Borther’s judgement! Their pack looks strong, but so does ours, and this is where the game will be won and lost! Inviting pressure on to us with no Reffell to contest the breakdown makes me nervous. Borthwick's tactics have made us far more competitive this season so ...
