Re: Is it now time to thank Cockers?

Whilst changing Cockers may work for a while (and if it happens I hope it does), I can't help feeling that we are just scratching the surface. IMO It's much bigger than a coach being replaced here and there. We are stagnating as a club and that (unfortunately) is due to the whole structure and ethos...

Re: George Ford

Valid point drc. I do however wonder at the unbridled joy expressed when reading an article claiming Ford won't be coming. Very odd. If a world class player is available and he fits within the overall pay structure then why on earth not have him? Whilst both of the incumbents are fantastic and I wou...

Re: George Ford

Fair play to Sale if they are getting these young lads signed up but I still can't see the Ford thing. Just doesn't feel right.

Time will tell.

Re: George Ford

As I posted on the Non Tigers Transfer Rumours thread the new suggestion is Sale. I can't see it and always thought Stains would be the best fit in terms of their current need, stature, etc. Still hope we have him though, I think his partnership with YBY for club and country will be a massive draw....

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non Tigers 2016/17

Eggchasers Rugby Podcast are claiming the likelihood is that George Ford is going to Sale !!!! Really can't see this one, it just doesn't add up. The justification seems to be that we won't have enough room within the cap and that they have heard a player has been told he cannot sign for Sale as the...

Yes, I heard that somewhere too.

So is that a sign of our inability to compete financially for top talent or have they just overpaid?

Re: Leicester Tigers 2016/17 Squad/Transfers/Contract thread

Those No.8's on the list keep getting snapped up elsewhere.

Let's hope the powers that be have something lined up!!!

Confirmed. Carl Fearns goes to Glaws.

Was really hoping we had this one. Cracking signing for them.

Re: George Ford

David Flatman (on the Flats and Shanks Podcast) suggested that whilst he isn't sure, the noises he is hearing in rugby circles is that Ford to Tigers is a done deal. I for one would welcome him with open arms. Why wouldn't we want a world class 10? Totally accept that it isn't the most urgent positi...

Re: Matt Toomua - anyone heard any news yet?

Wouldn't mind seeing if the Srivaddhanaprabha family fancied adding Tigers to their Sport portfolio. They have done a cracking job with City. I think big money backers are the way the sport will go anyway so why not get on the bandwagon early doors. We must be the best proposition in terms of suppor...

Re: Matt Toomua - anyone heard any news yet?

Home grown then?

Does Charlie Thacker play 12 or 13?

No Manu, No Toomua, No 8. Season is likely a write off (joke) so lets blood some youth.

Good luck with the rehab Matt.

Re: Leicester Tigers 2016/17 Squad/Transfers/Contract thread

Tim on the Eggchasers Rugby Podcast has just fanned the Fearns flame. Apparently all of the London Irish players are talking about Fearns to us at the end of the season being almost a done deal.

Tims brother is Nic Rouse of London Irish.
