Re: Times report Ford on his way to Tigers

It's a shame that Freddie didn't stay and fight for his place. That said, I fail to see how this can be viewed as anything other than a fantastic signing. The incumbent England No. 10, best years ahead of him, the best hands in the business in terms of distributions, etc, etc. Just think of that bac...

Re: Starting 15 for the Gloucester Game?

I'd definitely go with McGuigan.

He has really stood up the last 2 games.

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non Tigers 2016/17

Also, Newcastle Falcons are apparently lining up: -

Josh Strauss - Back Row

Mark Bennett - Centre

Both from Glasgow.

Good signings if true.

Re: Owen Williams in Six Nations squad

I wonder how Glaws will feel about this. I assume they thought he would be available all season.

Is it a bit Rhys Priestland-ish?

Re: The Tigers business model

Couple of ways to attract top talent. a) Create a winning team and infrastructure within which players can develop and vie for international honours (Old Tigers) b) throw shed loads of money at them. b alone is not likely to be successful so a is a mandatory requirement But in today's market don't ...

Re: The Tigers business model

Underhill, Rapava-Ruskin, Fearns, etc, etc.

Are these all examples of our current lack of pull and inability to complete in the transfer market?

Maybe Rapava-Ruskin wasn't essential but the others????

That's some back row options they have: -

Faletau, Zak Mercer, Louw, Denton, Garvey, Underhill to name but a few.

I would take any of those in a heartbeat.

Re: Departure of Cockerill

3. The fundamental issue is still the structure of the club and with it our inability to complete in terms of finance, not necessarily just the playing staff (although I do think player acquisition and retention has been poor), but also our poor marketing strategy and inability to maximise revenue....

Re: Departure of Cockerill

For what its worth here's my view: - 1. The numerous interviews I've seen by AM since the RC departure clearly suggest the he was hamstrung in his attempts to run the on-field side of the team. This was surely the reason he was brought in in the first place so it seems utter madness that he wasn't a...
