Re: Coaching Staff vs International Players

Kicking, whilst not always good to watch, can be a very effective way to manage a game, particularly against a rush defence. The problem has often been poor kicking from two of the best exponents of the skill. Kicking to relieve pressure and gain field position such that mistakes are less costly is...

Re: Semi Final thread

Clear red.

Exeter should be down to 14 for the second half.

Re: DoR?

Our club has had all its past successes with a Director of Rugby and a Head Coach, under Deano we had a non coaching D.O.R whilst Pat Howard and Cocker held the position whilst being active coaches. Geordan was an assistant coach under Cocker, Aaron Mauger and Matt O'Connor, in his role as assistan...

I am getting really fed up of Murphy-bashing by the usual few who raise it on every thread. Is Murphy the new Cohen, who received constant abuse from some posters?

Re: DoR?

I suspect the issue is not whether we need a DoR and a Head Coach but, rather, whether we need a DoR and a Head of Elite Performance Recruitment.

Re: Predictions 20-21

I’m a Tigers Fan so we are going to win the title next season obviously. And if we don’t it’s going to be the fault of the Ref, TMO, Steve Diamond, unnecessary kicking (except when it’s necessary), Matt O’Connor, and whoever got rid of Harry Thacker. :smt003 Oh you lot of little faith......... It s...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

Paul Tait reports: Argentina's Ledesma went for Pau’s Ignacio Calles over Leicester Tigers’ Facundo Gigena for the Rugby Championship roster because of their comparative game time. “We have the best references from Ignacio Calles both in his time at the Liceo Naval in Buenos Aires and in Pau. He was...

Re: Digital forum

Thanks for that Strawclearer. Takes a stretch of the imagination to get from Bondi to Sam Williamson but I'm there now :smt017 . My bad (as us kidz say) - I forgot to mention he's an Aussie, hence 'Bondi'! Not only is he Aussie, he's got the stereotype look of a long haired Aussie surfer out on Bon...

I must have been away on an inter-galactic mission for many months but can someone explain to me who Bondi is and what his connection to Tigers was, or is, please. Bondi is Sam Williamson - Digital & Social Media Manager at Leicester Tigers. Fast becoming a legend in his own lunchtime; madder than ...

Re: A new defence coach?

Are you saying that Borthwick would have turned down the opportunity to be a Head Coach if he couldn't have GM as his DOR? So, what, he would have just walked away from rugby until GM got a DOR role and offered him a job? Be sensible... Of course I'm not saying that (and telling me to "be sensible"...

Re: A new defence coach?

Murphy is no longer a coach and is DoR. Borthwick selects the side, 100%. Geordan was out of his depth as head coach, I believe he intimated as much in some interviews, but as DoR he's looking more at the overall structure and pathway from Academy to First 15. Geordan and Borthwick are responsible ...
