Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2020-21

Quite harsh on him. Wasps finished 9th the season before he arrived. In 2016,17,18 they finished 3rd, 1st and 3rd (plus one semi and 2 quarters in the Champions Cup). Given the move to Coventry, the financial issues and the constant rotation of star names, I'd say he did a good job. Ok, the last 18...

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2020-21

Dai as DOR and then Peel to join from Ulster as head coach in the summer. Should work for them. Some rumours they are trying to bring Priestland in at flyhalf. As I said to my Llanelli born-and-bred brother-in-law, Blues must be desperate. Dai has a proven track record of producing serially under-a...

Re: Formerly of this parish

Sam Costelow got 15 minutes at the end of a dire Scarlets v Dragons game. Hardly got the ball for 10 minutes and then capped a more involved last 5 minutes with a try and conversion. :smt023

Re: Exeter overhyped?

Bristol have been able to spend up to the salary cap, even when in the Championship thanks to Mr Lansdown. I don't think that Worcester ever have. That helps :smt002
I don't know about Exeter's spending but they have gone down the incremental progression route on a solid foundation.

Wrong thread perhaps?
Why?
My apologies. I thought it was just a general recruitment statement for another team - I had now idea he used to work for us! :smt053

Strength and Conditioning coach Pete Burridge joins Bristol Bears today Wrong thread perhaps? Why? Because this is the Tigers "recruitment" thread? We seem to be more than happy with Aled, so not looking elsewhere and we have a non-Tigers "recruitment" topic? However, as the person who created this...

Re: Happy Christmas

Buon Natale e Felice Anno Nuovo.

Mustn't forget our Italian friends. Have had quite a few really enjoyable December rugby weekends in Treviso. A lovely town at any time of year, but especially just before Christmas.

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2020-21

I don't understand the comments when London Irish sign a player who isn't Irish. I understand their history, but it is exactly that. I expect Leicester Tigers was originally founded as a team for people from Leicester to play in. Times change, London Irish is just a name now. I think (and am more t...

Re: Premiership rejects BT TV offer

It would be harsh on BT which have done a better job than Sky were doing, (cant stand Dayglo or Doyle though), whose to say Amazon wouldn't up it again. I only have a BT subscription at present as all our league games will be on, once that's finished, I'll be off, I don't have Prime but if the rugb...

Re: Danny Cipriani

Gloucester aren't poor because of Cipriani. Gloucester, a club that has one of the strongest talent bases in the country that is absolutely packed with young English potential are poor because they have been run poorly, sound familiar! Presumably you are a Gloucester fan by the sound of it :smt003 ...

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

Might be worth keeping a eye on No.7s at the Scarlets, they have at least 3 good enough for the starting role. At present it does look as if Costelow might of made an error, 4th choice at present. Could be. I think that a lot will depend on how much Cubby is injured (he's quite injury prone - no su...

Re: World Cup 2023 Pool draw

So far away, who cares. Ridiculous drawing it now. I'm interested in who is in what group, so I care. When would you like them to draw it ? When all the qualifiers are known and the seedings won't materially change - and logistically when teams need to know. I am not saying don't post it but really...

And World Rugby agree and are changing it for the one after. To about a year before.
