Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 1

As he plays for the army he is probably just training with our guys while they are in Aldershot. I wouldn't read anymore into it until there is an official announcement

Re: Ringfencing finally here?

Do away with the PRC. Replace it with a competition where championship teams face premiership teams who are represented by under 23's. this would level the playing field as the championship teams would be able to have wiser older players.

Re: Ringfencing finally here?

by johnthegriff » Fri Jun 28, 2019 11:37 am The gap between Premiership and Championship rugby is huge that is why a promoted team has to recruit heavily before starting their Premiership campaign even then they usually struggle. The chances of Championship winners beating the bottom Premiership tea...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

the whole point is if they were not saracens players would the investment be there ? answer NO! if they are being given any "help" to set up a business it is only due to them being saracens players and therefore this money should count as part of their salary

Re: 2019 World U20s

if you look at the replacement trial you will see that you can still only use 8 of them. it just allows a like for like replacement ie if you have already used 7 including your back row replacement and another back rower is needed you can use a specialist back row rather than having to bring on say ...

Re: Sir Barnes

all that is needed to sort out the tackle is a return to the old ways 1 when a player is tackled as soon as any part of his body, other than the soles of his feet, touches the ground the tackled player must release the ball. 2 once the tackle is complete ie once the ball has been released the tackle...

Re: Challenge Cup

The challenge Cup is a proper 1st team competition that is the difference. If the Premiership Cup is policed properly with a limit on the number of 1st team players in the match day squad set and adhered to then the problem would be solved. The other option for the Premiership Cup is to follow the W...

Re: Hallelujah...about time

i agree about the advantage law it should be fixed at 10 metres gained or 10 phases without loss of field position thus making the side with the advantage use it rather than kicking over the top or playing down a blind alley with no hope of making forward progress

Re: ARE THERE ANY LAWS IN THE GAME THAT YOU WOULD CHANGE?

only question that the referee can ask the tmo re try scoring "try yes or no" . the current situation where a referee can award a try but ask for it to be checked with a question like " can you check if it was grounded on a player" is ridiculous if with no clear view of the grounding whether on the ...

Re: ARE THERE ANY LAWS IN THE GAME THAT YOU WOULD CHANGE?

if a side drives a maul more than 10 metres forward and it then becomes unplayable they should get the put in at the resulting scrum. enforce the transferring of the ball to the back of the maul, too many tries are being scored by a man with 2 or 3 players behind him driving him over the line. redef...

Re: Sione banned for 5 weeks in reality

technically the Premiership cup is a different competition so why should it be counted as a fixture in the calculation of Rhodes ban? All we supporters want is clear and accurate information and a level playing field.

Sione banned for 5 weeks in reality

why is it that the outcome of the hearing is declared as being a 3 week ban but considering the fixtures the ban ends on 16th of april which is actually 5 weeks after the hearing? it is time that a 3 week ban meant exactly that. otherwise all disciplinary matters should be decided on a number of mat...

Re: What gets your goat in the rugby of today?

when a player is carded for a "high tackle with significant force to the head/neck area" and the tackled player gets up and is not sent for a HIA, if there was significant force to the head then a HIA should be compulsory. The medical staff, referee and TMO should be sanctioned for failing in their ...
