Re: Midweek Game - Wed 09 Sep Away to Wasps

I thought Leicester had a good start in this game but as the game broke up the rigid selections were exposed. For me yesterday's selection was a mistake and especially against a side like Wasps. Not a genuine open side amongst the entire 23 wasn't a good plan in my opinion. A lack of intensity and g...

Re: Midweek Game - Wed 09 Sep Away to Wasps

Leicester were 11th long before Borthwick arrived and were being pummelled by teams from Bath and Glasgow even further back. I do see some improvements such as the line out but it's little use if you're worse elsewhere. Leicester is a team overly reliant on structure and the moments that structure w...

Re: Midweek Game - Wed 09 Sep Away to Wasps

Not to mention Umaga at ?21 Leicester had lads as good as Barbeary but they didn't want them. The connected were too scared by them. Even Umaga had to go. While I agree about the good lads being missed (wrong club or connection in the past) - it has been ever thus - Umaga was the ££££, as I am begi...

Re: Midweek Game - Wed 09 Sep Away to Wasps

Also, next time we're talking about how our youngsters are "only 22" or whatever and still have loads of time to develop - watch this game back, watch Barbeary, then you'll understand what a top player looks like at the start of his senior career. Not to mention Umaga at ?21 Leicester had lads as g...

Re: New ban on assembly.

I'm led to believe that the maximum of six is being timed with the seasonal change in weather.
They don't want gatherings moving indoors.

Re: Cards and punishment

Lam should wind his neck in.
A single punch either way can do a lot of damage.
A certain level of discipline is required otherwise the sport can go back to the thuggish days of no television exposure.

Re: Tigers vs Sale - 05 Sep 20

Similar to other matches.
Even start.
They work the positions to score a lot of points and then drop intensity.
It's a contest and then they raise it again near the end.

Re: Puzzled - Saracens!

Seeing the table I noted that Sarries have accumulated 58 points from 12 wins and 10 bonus points. Had the first 35 point deduction stood then Sarries would now be on 23 points, just 1 point behind Leicester. That they have done that having played quite a few lesser known players and youngsters in l...

Re: Gloucester vs. Tigers - Sun 30 Aug 20 (1630)

Lavanini lost the ball in contact, which led to a Gloucester try but I’m not sure if it was a rip or a knock-on, conveniently there was never a replay to show it. But he really stepped up yesterday and played well for most if not all of the game, was very good in close quarters defence and also his...

Re: Reversing the great schism. Is it an option now?

To paraphrase Emily Scarrett ( BT -sale/bristol) - The rules have always been there the ref's are now implementing them. OK she was referring to the breakdown.However we would't be having this discussion and debate every other week if the rules at scrum time were implemented. There would be no need...

Re: Gloucester vs. Tigers - Sun 30 Aug 20 (1630)

I spotted Taufua fling his headguard to the floor at the end. I'd like to think a sign of his commitment and desire. I think he was frustrated that Henry had kicked away position in the 22 and in the last minute when we looked like we might get our 4th try and a bonus point. Real commitment from Ta...

Re: Tigers vs Sale - 05 Sep 20

Lavanini is a strong player absolutely no doubt about it.
When the language is overcome with the arrival of players like Moroni and Montoya then Lavanini's full potential will flourish.

Re: Gloucester vs. Tigers - Sun 30 Aug 20 (1630)

I thought that Tuafua and Henry were the Leicester stand outs. Both made things happen. Acceleration, footwork, vision, strength, self belief, desire etc. Big new positive for me was Henry. I didn't have a problem with selection and thought a weakened Leicester side might surprise as Gloucester are ...
