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.

Re: Scotland V England

Please can we change the playbook.
Turnover possesion = kick it
Lineout posetion = kick it
Ruck possesion = kick it, and on and on, it is so boring and mostly stupid, we won as the Scots were even more dire than us.

If that is the best we can do we may as well give up!

Re: France v England

This is worrying as England normally start well in the 6N and then fade away the longer they are in camp, so if the usual patern is repeated we are in for the wooden spoon!

Does anyone have the win- loss ratio with England v anyone with Nige as arbiter of which laws laws to ignore?

Re: IS this season a waste of money and time

The reason to watch this season, is to see if we can develope our game without the trapdoor of relegation as an excuse for the dire dross we have had imposed on us for the past few years GM can unleash the team without fear, we can lose without consequence so it realy should be style over substance,...

The lineout is a mess we lose the game, have I heard that before?
Under pressure Tom Youngs could not hit a cows behind with a banjo, for how many years has that been true?

Re: Saracens are relegated!

The Premiership should publish the report, or if that is not possible due to legal restraints, seek the backing of the RFU to force the permission of Saracens to publish or face being thrown out of the game forever. The RFU can and should force Saracens to open their book to proper scrutiny to see h...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

The investigation into salary cap breaches is no last minute matter it was announced at the end of last season Saracens have had plenty of time to address this, it is due to Wray's sense of entitlement and denial that they failed to cut the squad before this season started. Wray has shown himself to...

Re: Refs talk too much in English

I do not understand the thinking behind all the chat from refs, sure explain the reason after the whistle has gone to make the point but players know when they are offside or off their feet, the warnings and coaching actualy slow the game down and help to create the mess we now see at most breakdown...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

I see the let’s move on nothing to see here brigade are now trying to muddy the waters and say the cap is not enforceable and all clubs are probably cheating. The cap is easy to manage, all the clubs have always known any benefit that a player on their books receives as a result of being a player on...
