Re: Manu to Racing 92? No! - Re-signed for Tigers!!!

Delighted with Manu re-signing. 12.Reid, Eastmond 13.Manu, Taute Midfield depth has been a problem for a few seasons and that is an improvement in a key area. Add Andy Forsyth on dual-reg, Worth being useful at 13 and Hardwick a talented 12. I'm optimistic about that for next season. I'm greedy. in...

Re: ARE THERE ANY LAWS IN THE GAME THAT YOU WOULD CHANGE?

I'm sure there must be a good few. What would you change, and why? Sorry if this has been done before. 1. Set a time limit for forming up at the line out and throwing the ball in. Too much time wasting. There seems to be a comittee meeting before each line out, then the players saunter up and get i...

Re: New Coach?

With regards to MightyMouse's post, MOC was IMO the issue over non-development. He stated he was first-team coach (i.e. not Development), to my memory avoided playing youngsters, and at Leinster was known as 'Black Door' after a local hostelry that shut the door on young people. I agree JG. Our big...

Bateman as well now. That's all we need. :smt022
Whilst not ideal we have more than adequate resources at loosehead with Genge, Gigena and Ma'afu.

Sometimes I think the referee should be yellow or red carded!
Permanently in the case of Craig Maxwell Keyes. :smt003

Re: Tigers v Saints

Sounds good to me!! With Bateman injured I wouldn't have thought so. Genge to start at loosehead with Gigena on the bench. Gigena has been very good the last few games. Can see him overtaking Bateman next season, seems stronger at the set piece and is working on his carrying. Promising future. Quit...

Re: Sarries being investigated

Having read Nigel Wray's side of the story (see link below) I find the difference he points to between investments and salary a telling one. It would appear that the money players have put into these investments is from their salaries. If their investment had been covered by additional money from th...

He has been cited though.
I hadn't seen that. Good. Let's see whether the disciplinary panel can be consistent for once.

Re: Sione banned for 5 weeks in reality

I think it was a red under current laws but in the highlights programme there was another example(can’t remember which game) which was much worse as it was a shoulder in a ruck into the back of a guys neck. Zero action on that one which makes the Lwas a bit of a joke It was Michael Rhodes in the Ba...

Re: Sione banned for 5 weeks in reality

On a related issue does anybody know whether Josh Beaumont got cited for his initial action which provoked SK to do as he did?
Because to my mind he should have been.

Re: WOULD YOU PREFER PRIVATE OWNERSHIP?

I think we need to go back to the days of having a major main sponsor, Caterpillar leaving looked like a sign that things were on the down. Perhaps there is no differnce between having 5 different mini main sponsors or just one, but that has always been the impression to me we should try and secure...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 5

What happened to our forwards coming round the corner phase after phase pummeling teams?! That style doesn't work anymore it seems. Somebody needs to tell Exeter. It was branded, by some, as boring rugby and not what we wanted to be known for. The club tried to evolve and move away from the 'power ...

Re: Sale vs Tigers

Finally seen the red card. I think they are a bit hasty and completely ignore Beaumont doing the same thing to SK. No excuse, but let down by the TMO again. You wonder if he hadn’t gone down like he’d been shot they would have looked at all. I viewed it the same way. The problem is that retaliation...
