Michele Rizzo has tweeted his pleasure at being able to run outside in training this morning after 3 months - on the road to recovery!

Re: Still stuck in the mud! - Development updates

Couldn't have been more wrong about the in-goal area - looking more like a beach now!

Re: Still stuck in the mud! - Development updates

There seem to be multi-coloured rectangles in the in-goal area now (advertising, I presume). I wonder if these are on a newly laid artificial surface? We will see this afternoon!

Re: Still stuck in the mud! - Development updates

The webcam seemed to show that work on the roof finished on Thursday. I imagine that the 'A' League game has been moved to allow access on Monday, with a view to completing the roof for Boxing Day.

Re: Strength in depth

I predict that Fitzgerald and Williams (M) will be first choices, as will Veainu, who I'm amazed to see in the third list above.

Re: When do we get O'Connor?

You're right, of course. It wouldn't surprise me if he wants to to get stuck in straight away. He seems to be that kind of bloke!

Re: When do we get O'Connor?

Cockers is on record as saying that O'Connor will need to be very carefully integrated. He's played a whole Super Rugby series, stand-out player in a losing side, followed by captaining Hawkes Bay in the ITM Cup. He has been 'Mr Perpetual Motion' in the back row and hasn't even been injured, so abou...

Re: SCW tells it like it is

Reported in the Guardian, but not in the Independent, that Cockers also thought that it should have been made clear that Manu was injured at the time of his indiscretion.

Re: Our Italians' injuries

I believe Rizzo was hoping that his injury was a 'sprained knee' rather than anything more serious. We will see.......

Re: If true this is a killer!

I may be wrong, but reading other posts on this thread, I got the impression that 'Jake' was Jason Leonard.

Re: England vs Wales - Ford dropped

Even then, Watson nearly butchered the chance. The bottom line is that we have some very good qualities but, overall, l we are not quite good enough.

Re: 2015/16 Squad/Contracts/Rumours Thread Part 1

The extended highlights show O'Connor's involvement leading up to Buckman's try. I thought he did a passable impression of Kieran Reid at the weekend - food for thought for our coaches, even though we've signed him as an open side.

Re: 2014/15 Rumours/Contracts/Signings part 4

Crusaders' season wasn't unlike ours, disrupted by injuries to key players. They really improved when Carter came back, but Read hardly played. They were one of the form teams for the final few rounds, but it was just too late. I am more than happy with our acquisition of Mike Fitzgerald. There was ...

Re: So when is the new kit unveiled?

Nadolo is also a big friend of of Lachlan MacCaffrey and they used to room together. When they met up in Sydney the other week, I had the temerity to suggest to Lachlan on Twitter that he should encourage his mate to come to Leicester too and was quite chuffed when this was favourited :-) (You don't...

Re: Manu Tuilagi to Saracens!

I don't understands why you immediately turn this round against the Tigers management: "What's going on at Tigers?". Why would anyone be surprised that Manu is a massive transfer target as he gets to the end of his contract?
