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...

Re: Gigena and Cordero

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.

Re: Maxime Mermoz (centre, Toulon) close to join Leicester

The signing of Maxime Mermoz to the rest of the season, is not going to make a jot of difference until the forwards can learn how to compete at the breakdown.

Re: Words to describe tonight's performance

I have also been a long term season ticket holder of 29 years and this is definitely the worst position I have seen my beloved team in. I realise we have many injuries, which seems to be a curse, but over the past few weeks we look like a team that hasn't played together before and hasn't done any t...

Re: Tigers v Glasgow

The coaching team choose who get contracts. It's not just the coaching team that deal with contracts. Simon Cohen has a large part to play and values the financial side over what is good for the playing side and frankly it stinks. I know for a fact that Laurence Pearce was told by the club that a c...

Re: e cigarettes

All smoking, whether it be tobacco or vapour is a health risk not only to the smoker, but also to the people around them. The day the UK, and many other countries banned this disgusting practice in public was welcomed by all non-smokers. Recently, in a restaurant, an e-cigarette was lit, next to my...

Re: e cigarettes

E cigarettes are almost as bad as the originals Sorry Noddy, but you're actually very wrong about this. Cigarettes contain over 4000 toxins and carcinogens whereas ecigarettes contain Nicotine (addictive yes, but in low doses found in ecigarette vapour no more harmful than caffeine), Propylene Glyc...

Re: Pearce to Sale

It makes sense that it comes down to two things. 1. He's not getting enough game time, which has probably been promised at Sale 2. Tigers probably need to get rid of an 8 and unfortunately it just turns out that his contract is due up where others aren't. He fits in well with the type of game that M...

Re: Pearce to Sale

I am so annoyed at this. We are losing a great young talent and keeping two 30 year olds in break like a twig Fonua and No gain Crane, both of which he has outplayed this season.

Austin Healey

Is it me or is Austin's commentary in today's match very pro Wasps and quite negative towards Tigers. You'd never believe he is an ex Tiger player. Even Dayglo is saying nicer things about Tigers than Aus
