Re: Team up v Munster!

Scrappy game but much more heart from the Tigers than last week as expected. Munster didn't look as accurate as last week and I thought Munster's Zebo was very unlucky to be yellow carded, was right in front of me and no way could he pull out of that, the pace he was travelling at was absolutely unb...

Can't disagree with anything he says in that article no matter how annoyingly smug he may be.

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

Slightly frustrating though that these dream teams involved signing players to block the progression of our best academy prospects into the side. :smt003 Guess that is down to squad balance though. He/she (Charlie being a name that swings both ways) is simply being opportunist and jump on anything ...

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

I would be happy with in my dreamworld Tigers 23: 1) Genge 2) Youngs 3) Cole 4) Barrow 5) Whitelock 6) Williams 7) Brussow 8) Heaslip (although any decent ball carrier will do ATM) 9) Youngs 10) Ford (I am happy with Burns though) 11) Veainu 12) Toomua 13) Manu 14) JPP 15) Woodward (Ultimate dreamw...

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

Zander Fagerson Eben Etzebeth Jonny Gray David Denton Owen Farrell Sorted! Not sure signing those players would help address the areas of weakness in the team. Etzebeth aside, though the cost of bringing him in would probably mean we signed nobody else (neither Toulon nor Sarries were able to convi...

Re: Is it now time to thank Cockers?

RagingBull Didn't sound like a player source to me the way it was worded it sounded more like a back room staff bit of gossip. Gossip is no good RagingBull, it's time for some honesty and we only seem to get that off RC, questionable and brash as it may seem at times at least you can rely on it to ...

Re: Is it now time to thank Cockers?

IMO the wrong man - who demanded Hansen as part of the deal, is in charge of team tactics etc? If Cockers gets the push and Mauger stays, I believe the initial (in hindsight) gamble will be doubly confounded. YBY will back whoever is nice to him BTW - he was one of the only pro-MOC players in the d...

Re: Munster v Leicester, Thomond Park

Not sure if it was mentioned in any of the previous 14 pages but stat that stood out for me: they missed 2 tackles all match, we missed 18. Or one every 5 mins.... always going to be a bad day... Yes - a telling statistic. I think teams are coming at Leicester with more fire than ever before when I...

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

Sarries don't have that many local lads. Farrell is Northern so doesn't count, so is Wigglesworth. Unless by local you mean young players that have come through the academy? In that case, we have plenty. Perhaps you could tell me all of Saracens local lads? Just a gander at Academy graudates in the...

Re: Premiership DORs, Cockers and critics

Carp? Mirror,crucian or common? Instead of trying to be clever why don't you explain why he isn't a better hooker than McGuigan? Carp as in "buts" rather than "butt". If you haven't seen why he isn't better then no point me trying to explain it to you. Personally I prefer the term different rather ...

Re: Premiership DORs, Cockers and critics

I've seen enough from both to know Thacker is a better choice than McGuigan. I've noticed there's a hell of a lot of miserable folk on this forum! Should come to ours and have some fun! Seems to be a lot of folk who hang on Cockers buts as well as if he cant do no wrong! You upside down, you sound ...

Re: Premiership DORs, Cockers and critics

It's selection and personnel for me. The lack of number 8 at this level is unforgivable,LM is a 7 and ut should be him or BOC,not both. Put Fitzgerald back at 6,where he played his best stuff last season instead of keep playing him at lock. Look at Thacker,dynamite last season and what happens,Cock...

Re: Ben Youngs

Ben Youngs always struggles when his side can't dominate the breakdown. Sam on the other hand is the type to put his head in and add an extra body at the ruck and leave distribution to the next man. Given Tigers struggle with the breakdown recently it's compounded further for Youngs. I think a 9 nee...

Re: Premiership DORs, Cockers and critics

We have a big dynamic hooker, unfortunately he is being used as a prop. Another example of how the coaches don't seem to have moved on with the times. Second rows are undynamic. And the flankers are all too easily knocked off the ball. Kicking game is plain daft. Not to touch and too far for the ch...
