Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Steve Borthwick and the Chamber of Oval Park

Imagine a MF of Smith, Kelly, Manu? I suppose we can dream! Smith needs to move forward a bit. He’s playing too deep for Quins and England. He won’t challenge the line where he is currently standing. Farrell on the other hand, love him or hate him is on fire and should start at 10. Kelly outside of...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Steve Borthwick and the Chamber of Oval Park

Rolling Maul Pod connecting us to Joel Kpoku. From about 17½min in. Basically saying we're in talks with him, unsure if it's for next season (unlikely but he may want a shot at the world cup). More likely for summer 2023 when he's out of contract. That said it all seems pretty early days from what'...

Re: Players Awards

Ashton, Chessum and Reffell. Burns in my view isn’t a newcomer but anyway, Ashton’s impact has been sensational given what position he was in 2 years ago. Chessum was at Nottingham this time last year and his rise has been meteoric. Reffell just gets it over Montoya. Every game he has key interventi...

What I have seen of Radwan suggests he has serious gas but some way off in other areas of his game.
Which areas? I thought he did well defensively yesterday.
Kicking game. Defence under the high ball.

Re: Tigers vs Wasps - 04th June 2022 KO 15:00

I’ve said it before, Nadolo can create something out of nothing and in a knock out game, that could be the difference. His defence isn’t that bad, yes, the quicker guys are hard to handle for him, but for everyone else as well.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Steve Borthwick and the Chamber of Oval Park

I agree with anz3001 - can you see Borthwick after the first of the autumn Internationals saying “we’re just looking to get better and improve with every game”. You don’t have that luxury with the national team. Plus the media are all over you like a rash, it would take a strong stance to bat off th...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Steve Borthwick and the Chamber of Oval Park

It could be a frustrating one, if you go by Tigers “hush hush” policy on injuries. We may never know how severe the Dolly injury is/was, except if November rolls on and he’s still not in the training videos then we know it was as serious as first thought. Rolling maul pod had a good feature on this,...

Re: Other Weekend Games - 20th to 22nd May 2022

I think Glaws fans were hopeful of a weakened Sarries going to Kingsholm in two weeks time. Not a hope I suspect as they’ll want top spot.

Re: Tigers v Newcastle (A) 21st May 2022 KO 15:00

That bad guys? Dolly’s injury throw us off perhaps? We controlled most of the first half and not much possession for Falcons but just couldn’t unlock them. After the Dolly injury it did knock us back a bit and we didn’t take advantage of the extra man. Second half Falcons clearly had a kick up the ...
