New Hotel & Car Park Construction

If memory serves me right work is scheduled to commence on 23rd March. Given the current Covid 19 pandemic I wonder will work start on time or be postponed ?

Re: May, Kalamafoni and McPhillps extended injuries

Very bleak news, what with Taute out for 3 mths and Manu potentially facing a long ban our season has taken a massive blow. Thank heavens for Saracens as otherwise we would have kissed goodbye to premiership rugby.

Re: Sarries vs Leicester - Teams Up

It seems to me that its Murphy that Crumbling Terrace is rightly concerned about not Borthwick.

Re: England v Wales

Ref deemed it was a shoulder charge so there is no mitigation for this offence under current World Rugby Rules. Mitigation is only considered if the Ref deems it was a legitimate attempt to tackle.

Re: England v Wales

According to experts on twitter the Ref got Manu's red card 100% correct and had no choice but to do so. The reason being that Manu did not lead with his arms and it was therefore a shoulder charge and he made contact with the head. Apparently there is no mitigation for a shoulder charge unlike if h...

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

Signing useless players is not a recent thing, although we do seem to have signed a fair few the last few years, anyone remember Gareth Raynor the rugby league try scoring machine..... Correct and until we swallow our own medicine we will continue to suffer the inevitable consequences. If we actual...

I just hope Borthwick will instigate changing some of our coaches.
Depends if Smurph and/or the Board allows it.

I really don't understand why we brought back Callum Green. Very very average.
Because he is an Ex Tiger what more could you possibly want????

Re: England v Wales

The Manu red card throws a shadow over club vs country debate as we were all looking forward to him returning and starting for the club. We are extremely fortunate not to be in another relegation battle otherwise we would be in serious peril without Manu. As it is from a fans and club perspective we...

Re: England v Wales

Will Manu be banned for just England games or Tigers as well ? It'll be in the coming weeks so for Tigers as well. I'll be surprised if he is banned given the nature of how the game was refereed. In particular how Parkes was allowed to high tackle Manu himself and how it kind of set the tone then i...
