Re: J. MAY ESQ.

A superb player, one of the few in the Tigers team who's form did not drop off when returning to club rugby after international duty, he will be missed but we move on and follow the Sale and Exeter model with fewer international disruptions to deal with.

Re: Puzzled - Saracens!

Ok I agree the first time round was a farce. However, the second time a slap on the wrist? They got fined more than £5m and relegated. As a result of relegation they've lost a number of key players and will have lost considerable funding from TV, attendances and competition earnings both domestical...

Re: Puzzled - Saracens!

This sorry saga goes back to the previous sweep it under the carpet decision when the breaches were first found, not dealing with it robustly then allowed even more cheating. Again the clubs have failed to clean the stables, allowing Sarries to accept a slap on the wrist without finding how far and ...

Some people seem to have taken going into isolation to extremes, unless I have misunderstood and have been doing a Cummins by logging on here!

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

Manu Tuilagi is coming across as a bit of a diva, Tigers have stood by him during his injury, legal and immigration status problems, this was no act of charity, but a calculation that he was worth the trouble and cost but his benefit to the team over the past few seasons has been very limited. Now w...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

I am disappointed in the conduct of some of the players or their agents (family) but we should bear in mind the old saying never meet your hero's. Modern media perhaps brings us too close so we can see the people behind the image, it is not always a pretty sight. Being a great rugby player does not ...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

Sadly the clubs relationship with the Tuilagi brothers has always been one of mutual self interest not loyalty, we allowed the best of the brothers Alesana to leave when he was offered a better deal, the same with the other brothers, so thank you Manu and best wishes for the future, his contribution...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

In all this talk of contacts, no one has pointed out that most contacts have a Force Majeure clause, I would assume Tigers will have activated this clause in all the players contracts that is how they can legally change the terms otherwise they are just whistling in the wind. Tigers would have a ver...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

People should listen to what our chairman says whenever he gets the chance, he wants Tigers to be here for a long time, the board are just custodians. That being so, playing in the championship for a season or two is not the big fear for the board, going bankrupt is the thing they will not allow! Th...

Player rebellion at Tigers

Telegraph reporting that up to 12 senior players are refusing to sign new contracts and face exiting the club is they do not sign by 5 pm today Another mess at Tigers, symptomatic of the last few years, for me losing the international players is a gain, they bring nothing to the club when they retur...

Re: Provisional Premiership Return Date ?

Rob Baxter quote from today's telegraph "Physically, I think we can do it if we start soon and we have no breaks but for me to sit here and go 'we are going to be playing in mid-August' is ridiculous,” said Baxter who has not yet been able to do hands-on group coaching as the players’ furloughed sta...

Re: SA to join a 7 nations set up

I like having the 6 nations on the BBC but losing the comedy duo of Brainfart More and Buttermouth Butler would be a welcome bonus, we might actually get some commentators that explain the action not just bicker constantly.
