Re: Calum Clark - Again!

Would it be too much for Northampton as a club to issue a statement saying that they disassociate themselves from the actions of this player and commit never to pick him again, It is only through the quick reactions of O'callaghan that saved Clarke from a very long ban, the club and management shou...

Way off the mark. One club said to be offering GF £800k+

Re: The old Harry Thacker debate

I don't think anyone can question his efforts for Tigers all round and he is certainly a handful around the field. His MoM performance was against mainly a 2nd team and yes the scrums went reasonably well. Our difficulty is that when he steps up to compete against top class front rows whoever is pr...

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

Sibarite criticises Cocker for not being upfront with players and quotes Niall Morris who hardly played for two seasons and although given every chance to regain fitness was unable to do so and has since retired. Had he been given a new contract what would sibarite have been saying about Cocker now...

Yes - we want Fearns!!!!!!
Very strong rumours (friend of someone's auntie's dog walker, etc) that it's a done deal with Sarries
My prediction is Gloucester.

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

Balmain isn't under contract end of season and has been told he won't have it renewed same with Brugnara. Well from what I gather. You are probably gathering wrong. Cockerill isn't generally up front and honest with the players. Ask Niall Morris who was left in limbo at the last minute. The situati...

Re: An issue of ranking question

You really think that money always buys success? Especially in the ultimate team sport of rugby? In that case Man Utd should win the league every year - they are the richest football club. But a little TEAM like LCFC won the Premier League last year, team spirit and good coaching. Cockers doesn't m...

Re: The Play Offs are short changing the supporters

Whilst I agree with the play offs under the current conditions, there should be some recignition for the team finishing top, as there is in rugby league. The format is okay and keeps the competition live until the final day. Hello! The final day is when any competition ends. Its now been orchestrat...

Re: Bring on Sarries! - Teams Up

Well I was one of a handful of Tigers fans who did their best today to cheer the team on. It was much better than the semi final, we fronted up, but we were out thought, out kicked and most worryingly out coached. Their players are not that much better than ours, they just defend better, kick bette...

Re: The Play Offs are short changing the supporters

Its very difficult to get a good balance. It is good to see full strehngth teams put out but there is no prize for finishing top. I agree with the play offs, whilst League matches are played during international weekends. The game is now professional and clubs need regular income. The game is also ...

Re: Cashton to Toulon

Good for him. The reality is he was only ever going to be a bit-part player for England. Yes perhaps that was to an extent his own fault but also the emergence of better wingers like Nowell who do much more than finish. Big bucks offers don't come too often and the price he will pay is closing the ...
