Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2017/18 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 2!!

Or becoming a 7? The problem with that is the same as with hooker we have better specialists in those positions, being great around the park can’t make up for it, as long as he’s at tigers the best he can hope for is as an impact player off the bench. It would be great to hang on to all our home gr...

Re: Tigers vs Falcons

Just watched the match back on the premiership website, it seems much the same as last week blew them away in the 1st half then seem to take the foot of the gas and just go to one up running and all the backs play was very lateral, players just drifting with taut and smith knowing there just going t...

Re: Tigers playing for England

If Daly is injured who does EJ replace him with. A Back 3 player, my pick would be Rokoduguni (Wade’s defence has been pathetic and nonexistent) or a centre like Joe Marchant who’s is the other form 13 in the country and definitely deserves his chance with England. Not that I disagree with your tho...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2017/18 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 2!!

With Zebo reputedly being offered €700,000 by Racing (http://www.newsnow.co.uk/h/Sport/Rugby+Union - £650,000), what are we going to have to offer Veainu in order to get him to sign another contract before the end of the season???????? It is worrying although I think a lot of the zebo offer will be...

Is Phil Space not rumouring a move to Tigers to replace TV? Northampton inside line were quick to rumour he alone with any other ful...

Re: Tigers v Castres

Also is Ellis genge now classed as one of the best props in the world strong in the scrum, amazing around the park, strong, fast and only 22. Got to start for England ahead of mako, so much better in the scrum and as good around the park.

Re: Tigers v Castres

I think it's a case of taking your foot off the peddle cause you've taken a bonus point so easily. I don't think the subs came on and put their hands up for a starting place much like last week the tempo dropped, although Matt tait proved me wrong he had a great game and Hamilton again showing he's ...

Re: Double jeopardy - penalty try and sin binning

My only issue with this topic is if the shoe was on the other foot, we would have been calling for a card, and with only the penalty try in a clear try score chance the only addition punishment is the 2 point which worst case is 50/50 they get it so there has to be further punishment to stop it happ...

Re: Time for a rest?

I guess there's a difference between 'Time for a Rest' and 'Time to Protect'. Matt Toomua may be full of running but as our best/only 12 and a key influence on our performances to date, I'd be keen to protect him. Dan Coles fits into both categories. Completely agree with this also the fact that th...

Re: Time for a rest?

I completely agree it a long season and you have to use your squad wisely specially now with injuries seeming more and more common this year across the league. Especially want to see cole rested played another 80mins at the weekend props just don't do that nowadays.

Re: Dai Young complaining about players' wage demands

It's just like football. The money coming in goes up and average players demand more simply because they know there is more available. Let's assume a squad of forty players, two exempt from the cap as marque players, and you're paying up to the cap, so the average/year is just over £184K. Then cons...
