Re: Tigers vs Ospreys teams

I can't recall seeing Thommo in any pre-season pictures or, as you say, on the squad photo. My only guess is that he's either injured or on an extended break for whatever reason. If it is for personal reasons then perhaps that's why we've not had any mention of it from MOC. Hope it doesn't mean he ...

Re: Team Vs Treviso

Interesting, still no sign of: Manu (MoC confirming he'll hopefully be involved next week) Coley (assume still being rested from Lions) George Ford (assume he's being rested from England duty, but Gengey is in the squad...) May (same as Ford, although I suppose he is still getting fit and learning s...

DMAC at 15 for the All Blacks...surely that will mean he is staying in Nz?
For now :smt022

What a signing he would have been.

Re: Pre-season streaming

Video highlights posted by Ospreys - not sure if there's a full 80 minute version lurking around. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0F3OJSpyts One point I'd say is that Fred Tuilagi Jnr looks much leaner. Appreciate we don't see him doing a whole lot in the highlights but he already looks much more k...

Well said August.
Ok iceman, who is August? Yes the month is now August but if you are referring to me then I'am Angus. :smt023

I'd blame autocorrect on my phone but I must just prefer summer months to traditional Scottish names!

Re: Leicester Tigers 2017/18 Squad/Transfers/Contract thread!

Can't help feeling that we will not be getting DMAC due to Jordie Barrett's withdrawal from the AB squad for the Bledisloe cup series. He is bound to get game time with the AB unless they decide to play Dagg at FB. What a pity, BTW, I too don't like the word "garbage" in relation to anyone but do a...

Re: Manu sent home

Well said August. Yes, you can look it with our blinkers on and say - "They had a few beers, and there was no curfew, so what" - but the bottom line is that clearly the players themselves have set a standard to which they all want to adhere. If Manu and DS breach that, they are not just betraying th...

Re: Manu sent home

There's a lot of filling in of gaps at the moment, but I'd like a few more details first. To my mind, based on what we know, there are 3 possibilities, assuming no other parties were involved: - Boozing was banned in camp, but they went out anyway; - The team was on an authorised bonding social and ...

Re: Leicester Tigers 2017/18 Squad/Transfers/Contract thread!

Well, Tigers twitter is implying that we're in for a magic Monday of announcements, so I suspect that anything and everything that's left will be confirmed today. On a side note, DMAC is in limbo with the AB squad. Not selected in the main squad as either a full back or a 10, but listed as a replace...

Re: Leicester Tigers 2017/18 Squad/Transfers/Contract thread!

JGriffin everybody has their opinion of course, but I am staggered that you could even think that Ford was not impressive for the full 80 in that game against Bath. When I was there I was really impressed with his manipulation of the defence, his timing of passes etc - it caused us problems all day....

Re: Leicester Tigers 2017/18 Squad/Transfers/Contract thread!

McKenzie not coming,named in the AB RCC squad as backup FH. It was never really on anyway but Marty is apparently coming. Scott he's been named as the backup backup fly half (Sopoanga and Barrett ahead - with Mo'unga still to come in when Crusaders are done). Just as he has been the backup backup f...

Re: Leicester Tigers 2017/18 Squad/Transfers/Contract thread!

I see Ulster are after a fly half to cover Jackson's absence - hope that is not DMAC. Could make a lot of sense for him to go there and play fly half all year rather than the 1/2 year he will get if he comes to us. Happy to be corrected but I don't think I've seen or read that DMAC sees himself as ...

Re: Leicester Tigers 2017/18 Squad/Transfers/Contract thread!

When are we going to hear from the club either way on this? Gloucester seem pretty sure it is going to happen The standard procedure now seems for teams to do try and market the new signings by doing a 'magic monday' or similar. The rumour I hear is that the mckenzie deal is still on and if so it m...
