Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 2

Ford has carried us for the last eighteen months, agree that he’d be priority out of those mentioned. Part of me however is open to a complete clearing of the decks. The major issue over the last few years has been the quality left behind in the wake of Eng duty. Imagine the cap available if GF, EG,...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 2

With Sam Harrison soon departing we could do a lot worse than offer Alby Mathewson a short term deal now his Munster contract has run its course. Would provide cover for BY and help the youth along...

Re: European Challenge Cup - Cardiff vs Tigers

The outstanding positive... Genge. Has been a monster in defence and with ball in hand. I just worry for any big bloke playing on this surface. Couple of their lads have already had to go off

Re: European Challenge Cup - Cardiff vs Tigers

Being dominated by a 36 year old Nick Williams.

Not sure there’s any form of gamplan. Kick to nothing, repeat. Plus when we get in good areas, handling errors.

‘Rugby paper saying Genge has snubbed a offer from Bristol and is close to signing a 3 year contract with Tigers‘

Genge rattling the cage on Twitter. Maybe not all as it seems re: any extension

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 1

Denton retires. Sad news. Long term health comes first however. From the SRFU website: “My actual reaction at the time my neurologist told me it was no longer a good idea to play rugby... to be honest there was a bit of relief. This had been building up inside of me for four to five months. "I knew ...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD

No Luke Wallace then. Has signed for Coventry. Be a very good addition at that level, if he stays fit

Do we think we have sufficient back row cover?

*EDIT: seen this has been added to the ‘Non-Tigers’ thread...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 7

Re: Coghlan, judging by comments between himself and former Tiger (and now new Wasps Academy coach) Matt Everard on Twitter, seems to confirm he'll be playing GP rugby next season. Expect him to be in the next list of announcements. Personally, never seen him play so can't pass any judgement on qual...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 7

Tian Schoeman very much a 'stick it up your jumper' type 10/12 from what I've seen. Really physical. Would worry about his distribution in the GP. Not seen much, if any of Reid - does he cover 10? Or is he an out and out centre?

Re: London Irish: an immorality tale?

Paddy Jackson aside, interested to know peoples thoughts on how Irish will go next season? Spent BIG. Interesting to see Sean O’Briens comments in the press saying he’d have preferred to stay in Ireland for a fraction of what his new contract pays - not a great start. Kepu and Naholo very impressive...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 6

If we do bring Liebenberg in I pray to god we actually play him at 8. One of the major f*** ups over the past years has been having the likes of Fitzgerald, Williams even Wells, playing 4... 5... 6... Even going back a few years doing the same with McCafferty. Bring in a specialist No8? Play. Him. A...

Re: Leatigaga

Only worry with this signing is that, according to all reports, it’s been signed and sealed for about 18months. With all the chat that GM must be judged on ‘his signings’, are we sure the BOD are still not in charge of the hiring and firing?

Does anyone know much about Liebenberg? Have to be honest, know absolutely zilch about the bloke.
