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

Just watched the game, Martin was again so impressive in defence, dominating the opposition every time. Wiese was a wrecking ball and is desperately missed when not playing. Chessum with some great lineout steals, and would love to see someone with Radwans pace in our squad Is Chessum our best line...

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

So according to Fissler on the front page Borthwick is the clear favourite. Granted given his record of front page news with our coaches that isn't a cert. Wonder how Borthwick will like this leak if true though given he runs a tight ship. On the fence personally I feel now with this squad we will ...

I turned on the insects game just after half time to see someone on a stretcher - I couldn't see who it was but thought it'd be just out luck that it would be Gopperth. Thankfully it wasn't and good luck to whoever it was in their recovery
Elliott Stooke.
Thanks for confirming.

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2022

I have no rumours. I just thought we needed a recent page for this which doesn't include posts nearly two years old... :smt001 I hope this helps but it does not cover our Academy promotions. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_2022%E2%80%9323_Premiership_Rugby_transfers Yes Dragons are clearing o...

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

There are half a dozen or so Premiership players in the Wales squad. He knows that if he is good enough he will get picked and his best chance of getting better and better is at Tigers. Enough said. :smt023 Not beyond the end of his current contract thought and that's the issue You never know, he m...

Re: Decisions Decisions

What you also have to bear in mind is that there are supporters who play other sports which are clashing big time this season due to the late start/end of the season. I made the choice to play cricket (as have several others I know on the circuit) rather than take up the option to pay extra for anot...

Re: Boots?

Lots of the modern boots don't have studs as we'd remember them and are more blades than studs. That could well be having some impact. Also,.the pitches these days tend to be more lush all year round than they did in yesteryear. That too could also be having an impact. Blades are very much out of f...
