Re: Borthwick

Well one thing is certain Murphy is the goose that laid the golden nest egg. I simply cannot see any justification whatsoever for his promotion or qualification other than as a player he is a Tigers great. Hope Borthwick thrives and Tigers prosper. Well thankfully it’s not you who has to make the d...

Re: Borthwick

BBC news says he will start after 6N, which implies directly after 6N. But yes, that could mean 7 months after the 6N if anyone wants to be pedantic... It’s not being pedantic. It was announced yesterday that Borthwick will leave his role with England in November so to say he will join Tigers after...

Re: Borthwick

Pleased its finally been confirmed, and also pleased with the Murphy DOR appointment as he's been clearly been doing some good stuff behind the scenes even if out and out couching is not his best attribute. We'll have to see just how good Borthwick is as a head coach, but hopefully this means we ca...

Great news, starting after 6N. Looking forward to a new era.
Straight after the Six Nations or when his international commitments actually finish in November? It doesn’t actually state this.

Re: Borthwick

Head coach - perfect!! Murphy to DoR - convenient!! Murphy to DOR is what a lot of people have been looking for, his skill set will suit that position better. I see it working much as Humphreys and Ackerman do at Gloucester. Great how some posters can always see negatives from such a big positive U...

Re: Nemani Nadolo

I remember when Ben was exactly that - the exciting young prospect who would we hoped one day would replace Harry. Happened sooner than any expected or wanted (apart from Ben perhaps). Stuff happens to players and scrum halves are at least as vulnerable as any other player. Ben at his best IS a gre...

Re: Nemani Nadolo

After all , one never knows when the next incarnation of Harry Ellis will come along.

Re: Nemani Nadolo

...only if the price (contract) offers value for money to The Club. I’d imagine the current England scrum half would be worth the money and value to us. Especially when I can’t think of another scrum half to bring in. Do we really want to be left with young scrum halves when it’s such a vital posit...

Re: Nemani Nadolo

Mail today suggests Montpellier will possibly be offloading Nadolo because of new french quotas.. They mention Leicester as a ''potential suitor'' Presume this means May is going but why not have both !! Imagine that.. a 21 stoner a la Nairaravoro With Holmes Ford and Veaninu in the backline, all w...

Re: Tigers vs Cardiff - 12th January 2020

Been trying to work out what we need from the next 2 games to get a home quarter. Toulon and Bristol have already qualified and with Toulon at home and Bristol at Zebre, they will likely qualify as top 2 seeds. Bordeaux have also qualified and are on 22 points, but they have a trip to the Ricoh nex...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

By using the logic of not relegating Sarries due to the players being too powerful for the Championship, what happens if Tigers were to get relegated? Would Manu become less powerful? Genge? Would Jonny May become slower?

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

Zzzzzzzzzz this discussion has become boring, let’s move on, Saracens have been found guilty, paid the price, accepted their guilt. We need all the teams in the premiership to continue the great league we have, if we delve too deeply I think you will find that quite a lot of the clubs have sailed c...

Do you think they had heard the rumours about doing away with relegation?
No. They just have some faith and belief in them and their team mates. Unlike some on here.

Re: Ben Youngs

If Ben Youngs does leave, I very much think it will be a case of you don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone for many on here.
