Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

One 'small' point in all these re-signings today, I don't know if any of the players were above the threshold for a 25% cut or not, in which, they would have to (re-) sign a new contract. However, on the Twitter feed, each photo of the re-signing player has the word 'Extended' on it. How long the ex...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

Surprised I'm the first to mention this as its been up for over an hour on the Tigers Twitter feed:

Tonight, CEO Andrea Pinchen will answer questions regarding the clubs statement made earlier today, club activities in recent weeks...

And much more.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

We could as a club be intending to sacrifice short term glory for long term success, if we plan ahead we should be in a better position when the cap tightens, if it means losing some of or higher earners if they dont fit that ideal do be it. There is a very high earning centre of ours whose contrac...

1 year 9 months 28 days, to be completely accurate.
Is that to today, or to the point where the game was shut down, effectively putting everything on hold?

based on proposed time scale to the games restart we should not have to wait overly long for announcements now.
This is Leicester Tigers we are talking about :smt002 :smt003

Re: Steve Borthwick

Let’s wait and see if there is any improvement in our results with Borthwicks training, hopefully the only way is up after the last couple of years of Murphys tenure. Just to be fair, is it accurate to say Murphy’s tenure is two years? He was promoted up at short notice to start as head coach In Se...

In the UK, 1,000 people a year die from falling down the stairs. Anyone worried about walking down the stairs this morning? Nope, didn't think so.
Wrong. Loads of people have that worry. But the ones who DO worry about falling down stairs move into a bungalow if they can.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD

Long term he looks like 13 will be his position, he can pick a line & has gas, he may well work well with Nadolo by being there to pick up the offload or exploit the gaps. Is he the finished article, no, is he a better than average prospect yes. His next 12 months will give everyone an idea of if h...

Re: ANOTHER WAVE OF COVID 19?

Where is the old travel expert "Noddy?" who was so regular on this site months ago when he is needed?? Once a Try Line clubber. Well done Guernsey for being Covid 19 free. (back on track! ) :smt023 Noddy hasn't posted for just over two years and he used to put out about 10 posts a week. I fear it d...

Re: Adam Thompstone

I remember when Adam was announced as coming to us, there were a fair few comments on this forum along similar lines to Gary Lineker's reaction to Claudio Ranieri. I felt that he had been a pain in the neck whenever he played against us and various times when I had seen him on the box. Not quite sta...

Re: Good job Burns has left Bath...

Quite telling that no other premiership teams wanted to sign him. Are you sure they didn't? Maybe they did and he didn't rate the offer or they didn't fancy his terms. Maybe he just felt disillusioned in England and fancied chancing his arm in Japan, possibly the lure of experiencing a new culture ...

Re: Peter Tom YouTube

"was a good general open confirmation of what most genuine loyal supporters believe of him and the club" Nice little dig at those genuine ,loyal supporters who only question things because of their love of the club?! No. By saying "most genuine...", he acknowledges that there are genuine, loyal sup...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

So it’s all about the money? I think I’d want to keep testing myself at the highest level if it was me. Maybe its more down to game time on offer and placing himself in London for future career opportunities. Good luck to him and fair play for having a plan post rugby. My earlier point kind of sugg...

GT will be massive for Ealing. I hope he can stay fit. Best of luck Guy. Has this been confirmed? From 11 other Premiership teams, he isn’t going to any of them. That’s should tell those thinking us releasing him is a bad idea something. That Ealing are happy to splash the cash to get a very commit...

Re: Stuart Barnes - Cut The Garbage

It's an excellent article and proposal. I just wish the newspapers would refrain from using any photographs of Saracens celebrating their Premiership wins. And not just newspapers. I watched the Tigers games shown by BT Sport the previous two weekends. The start and end of the ad breaks were showin...
