Re: Ben Youngs - 100th Cap....v Italy...England Team announced

Furbank is an odd one, when he was selected earlier in the year he was in great form. The whole team him included didn’t play well against France then the conditions in Scotland were awful so difficult to pass judgement. Since then his form in the premiership along with Saints has been poor. So inte...

Re: Ford out of England Squad

Not sure Wilson will get back in when fit. He is a fine player but there are several there who are arguably just as good already and considerably younger and should get better. England nearly won the world cup but to take it to the next stage they need to to give the yonger players time to settle i...

Re: Ford out of England Squad

Umaga with Farrell at 12 will work, Simmonds with Farrell won't, that's probably what it boils down to. I do feel sorry for Sam as I feel he warrants another call up but hey-ho. Back row strength is pretty ridiculous to be fair. 6.T Curry, T Hill, Willis 7.Underhill, Ludlam 8.Vunipola, Earl That's ...

Re: Pre-Season Q&A: Geordan Murphy

Could do with a class 13 still, especially with Moroni injured. Also looking a bit bare on the left wing, hopefully SAR can come back and show us all he’s a quality winger at home in the premiership. Think the forwards look good, even with Taufua and Lavanini injured. Wiese and Liebenberg for me in ...

Re: Baa Baas game called off

Assuming they all have indemnity cover, wonder if the RFU can sue the players and get their insurance to pay out and cover some of the lost revenue.

Re: George Ford

Being rational, , methinks George's England days are numbered, as well as Youngs-----------for obvious reasons------- so this can only benefit the Tigers. But Achilles injuries are worrying, nevertheless. He's going to come under more pressure over the next few years. Farrell is 29 though so he's n...

Re: Wonder kids

For me has to be Tom Rees. I know England have loads of backrow options nowadays but back then when he was around we were desperate for an openside. No doubt if he’d remained fit, he’d have been England captain and stalwart of the side for many years. He was a quality player.

Re: Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year

Think Wells has played well since the restart, but also did seem to give away plenty of penalties. Also looked better at lock than blindside. Best player for me has been Liebenberg, always getting us over the gainline and making yards ball in hand. Can’t wait to see him paired with either Brink or W...

Re: England Training Squad announced

Great to see Heyes still in the squad. No doubt for these young players being involved in the set up does wonders for their development.

Re: European finals 2020

How is Joe Simmonds man of the match? For kicking all of his kicks? Just don’t get the hype with this guy I’m glad Eddie Jones is inclined to agree. This whole journey thing driving me nuts too, get rid of the racist branding and cheating tactics then I might feel elements of sympathy for their ama...

Re: European finals 2020

Knew Malins was a great player after he scored two out of nothing tries against us a few seasons ago. Has to be in the England team for me, such a talent.

Re: Jasper Wiese

Think since the restart our backrow has been one of our strong points, Liebenberg being arguably our best player with Reffell and Wallace stepping up. Add in Brink and Wiese who could be starters and we’re definitely in a good place.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

Looks as though Joaquín Díaz Bonilla will not be joining Los Pumas for the rugby championship, as he cannot get out of the UK. Hopefully this means he is in the UK or at least en route, and will be able to play for us come the start of the new season in November! https://twitter.com/argentina_2027/...
