Re: Ring fencing

I would not introduce 'ring-fencing'.

I would have the bottom club from the Premiership in a play-off with the top club from the Championship.

That's it.

Re: Ring fencing

Against ring-fencing and, next season, I'll have a great deal more sympathy for those opposition fans going through the prospect of relegation! This has been a salutary lesson...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 6

It's been a while since the old "journeyman" insult has been trotted out. Well, if some people are correct, we'll get relegated, all the big names will leave and the decent academy players will be snapped up by other Premiership clubs. We'll need those journeymen then :smt016 Calum Green is recogni...

Re: 5 games to pull that rabbit out of the hat!

I think the run-in I'd be most concerned about would be:

Worcs(h); Exeter(a); Saracens(h); Bath(a); Harlequins(h).

That's what faces Wasps.

Re: 5 games to pull that rabbit out of the hat!

£25K per England game, seems to be a bigger motivator than a premiership game. Absolutely nothing to do with but the sort of comment I would expect from you. It’s more to do with the playing and training time and the squad gelling. In response to your ridiculous comment George Ford got paid his £25...

Re: Relegation / How to avoid Relegation?

No it doesn’t. But the ship is heading for an ice berg, it would be nice to see the captain on the deck before the band starts playing rather than heading for his personal life boat I have no problem with him, you know, going home. And that’s fine. It just strikes me that the blame for a lot of the...

Re: Relegation / How to avoid Relegation?

Falcons losing to Sale. They run the risk of losing Green for the rest of the season for an alleged bite on Weber for which CMK felt there wasn’t enough proof even though Weber had a bite mark on his arm Webber was lucky not to earn himself a yellow for the choke hold. Two options if there was, ind...

Re: Relegation / How to avoid Relegation?

I spent last night tweeting what a sad indictment it is for Trump's administration to be celebrating no more indictments!

Now I'm on here reading that a couple of BPs should see us avoid relegation.

POTUS and Tigers - how are the mighty fallen!

Re: Tigers v Saints

Cask ale in the ABC had an aftertaste.
Pies ran out at half-time.
Train was very crowded - had to stand.

Apart from that - England guys (bar GF) looked knackered; rest of the team looked knackered; Barnes should be knackered.

All in all, most dispiriting.

That's all I have to say about that.

I'd have started Toomua - time to earn his salary.
