Re: The streaker

Whether the streaker was wrong or just a bit of harmless fun, what Hala'ufia did was completely disgraceful and could have caused serious injury to the man, which on the streets could have been deemed as assault

Re: 2014/15 Rumours/Contracts/Signings part 3

Just returned from a trip to South Africa and went to the Bulls vs Western Force game in the Super 15.

Mentioned to the SA guys we were with that there were rumours of us maybe signing Willie Le Roux. They basically said that he is an outstanding player and would be a massive signing.

I think all refs and linemen should be Tigers supporters

Re: Sale game

Niki Goneva is certainly not having the season he had last time out. Don't get me wrong I'm a big fan of his and I would have him in my side every week, as he is the sort of player like Manu that can make a couple of good line breaks that can inastantly turn a game. I would just love to see him come...

Re: 5 Laws you'd like to see changed in rugby

The problem with making penalties only 2 points is that the defending side would be even more likely to give away penalties in their own 22 than give away a try

Re: 2014/15 Rumours/Contracts/Signings part 2.

As if Manu and Camacho would ever be fit at the same time ;) You might have to eat your words. Yesterday the Merc reported that Gonzalo would be in next month and today they are reporting that Manu will back next month. Admittedly for Manu they have said this every month for about the last 3 months...

Re: 5 Laws you'd like to see changed in rugby

Ban teams with a narrow lead letting the clock run down at the end of the game by the forwards constantly taking a tackle in pods, going to ground, slowly recycling the ball and repeat.

Re: 5 Laws you'd like to see changed in rugby

Ban all kicks in open play. Much better.

Less lineouts, so less stoppages and force teams to play out of their own 22.

Re: Gonzalo Comacho

I really don't know what the issue is anyway. We can see what all the board members earn from the club, but we can't find out if Comacho, Manu or any other injured player is likely to return to full fitness. Why is it such a big secret? The other issue I have is why can't Tigers tell us things first...

Re: 2014/15 Rumours/Contracts/Signings part 2.

In what world do you think we are going to be able to afford Sonny Bill and Israel Dagg? It would of course be amazing. I'd be delighted. Bet then it would be amazing and I'd be delighted if I get home tonight to find a Bugatti Veyron on the drive and a team of servants looking after my every whim ...

14. Gonzalo Comacho
15. Israel Dagg

Re: I believe in Leicester Tigers

Looking at some of the people that sit around me in the Caterplillar Stand (sorry the GNC Stand.....Doh....I mean the MET-Rx Stand), you'd think that they didn't believe in anything. Sure most of them spend 80 minutes thinking of what they're going to have for dinner or which road will be quickest o...
