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

wouldn't call any of them Monsters though. Speaking of which Tomas Lavanini being linked to us, in todays rugby paper. The penalty magnet? Might suit 46 but makes Barrow look like an angel and Anton Bresler like Jesus. Whilst I'd take Petti over Lavanini every day of the week I suppose Lavanini cou...

Re: Have we missed a trick?

His break and offload at the weekend was ridiculous. Cockers has said that he would sell one of his kid's kidneys to keep him at Edinburgh

Do we know for certain that he's got £500k?

Re: Dead dead rubber v Ulster

This game is a matter of pride. We don't want to finish bottom of our group for the second year running.

Have we missed a trick?

Just putting this out there. Saw today that Nathan Hughes is moving from Wasps to Bristol at the end of the season. I know he's had his injury problems, but he's a hell of a ball carrier and enforcer. Have we missed an opportunity to bring some needed bulk into the Tigers' pack?

Re: Dear Murphs

I still fully support Geordie. I think he is the right man to lead the club as DOR, however we desperately need to strengthen the coaching squad with experience, starting immediately with a solid world class defense coach, if there is one available out there.

Re: Gutless tackling is an insult to the Tigers legacy...

Remember we currently have an Ex Tiger defence coach so why would the board appoint or need anyone else? We might have an Ex Tiger defence coach, but if you ain't doing your job then you have to go. The defence is laughable and you can't win by shipping 30-40 points a game. I realise the board have...

Not sure how it differs to George Smith's red card, which saw no further sanction. May have to youtube it and look. Bed now though.
Because George Smith isn't a Tigers player

Re: Who would you like to see as the new DOR / Head Coach?

I was listening to the Radio 5 rugby podcast and something struck me when they were getting Ugo Monye's thoughts on the sacking. He said that for a club to make this kind of decision after just one game, they must have been looking for a suitable replacement for some time to very quickly step in and...

Are the rules regarding the Champions Cup a joke?

Why do we have to have all these rules surrounding the draw of the European cups. Does it really matter if we get the unlikely result of 4 English clubs in one pool. Just by looking at the clubs in each tier and applying the rules around it, you could have almost predicted what Tigers' pool was goin...

Re: Have we just fallen foul of the worst tmo ever made?

The TMO has given the try based on the second attempt over the top. If the ref hadn’t blown his whistle why did he go to the TMO in the first place because he was right in front of this attempt and fully sighted of it. The ref went to the TMO because he couldn’t see the grounding on the first attemp...

I did say someone like them. We need a big domineering leader who will boss things.

Re: Gigena and Cordero

Instead of Cordero where imho we have enough cover, we need a good leader/enforcer in the second/back row. Can't we tempt someone like Kieran Read, Jerome Kaino or Sam Whitelock to come until the end of the season.

Re: Blaze gone

He was such a lovely guy and will be missed at the club. I had the privilege of being his sponsor when he was a player with us and even after the sponsorship ended, he would always come up to me and have a chat.

Re: Gareth Owen - New Signing From Scarlets

Looks pretty handy. Is it me or has he got a passing resemblance to Fernando Alonso of F1 fame.
