Re: Mike Brown

I like TV but would want him on the wing in "big" games where he can roam on to the ball in attack but his relative frailty under the high ball wouldn't be exposed so much - against most Prem sides he's very good but against the top one she'd get peppered - As such I'm unsurprised to see us looking ...

Re: Times report Ford on his way to Tigers

Well the worst kept secret in rugby is finally out! It's a shame they don't honour their contracts anymore. Perhaps the start of a major shift that could evolve into a transfer market. All very unsettling either way as neither Burns or Ford have played very well since all the rumour started. Some f...

Re: Leicester Tigers 2016/17 Squad/Transfers/Contract thread

That is just staggering, how many 22 year olds have played 50 times for a Premiership club, just typical of the silver spoon mentality who want the shirt given and not earned and another reason why Leicester continue to fall behind the best teams! Glynn was right when he mentioned the loss of form ...

Re: Could he be the new Neil Back

kornboy130 You quite clearly have an axe to grind here because this post along with your assertion that no one bothered to challenge you on earlier ("I know but won't say") are ridiculous. Bear in mind our current first choice hooker with 2 Lions test caps was given time to convert to hooker from C...

Re: Could he be the new Neil Back

As I've said all along - club should give him a year to convert to 9 and then take it from there. Personally think he could be no worse and potentially better than Kitto. What about Harrison and White or any young talent currently in the academy, I think it would send out a potentially very damagin...

Re: Maxime Mermoz (centre, Toulon) close to join Leicester

Can play both but as far as I know he's more of a 12.

Re: Better news than Mermoz!

All that normally results from such things are flashy PowerPoints and a big bill. Not hopeful this will answer the fundamental issues the consultants will be long gone after the next coaching cycle. Are you involved in recruitment at this level or just deriding consultants because they're expensive...

Re: We need to invest more money in the team! - None availab

So the ground development has not affected the amount of money we have been able to spend on the squad. Even if we had a multi-millionaire throwing their money around, we can still not spend any more money on the squad. Does everyone understand that?! Now can you stop moaning about how the board ar...

Re: Tigers DOR rumours.

Simply a 15 man game. Look at all the teams that have qualified for the last 8 of Europe and without exception they field sides where from 1- 15 they are comfortable with ball in hand, I don't think we have that. We can no longer physically intimidate and overwhelm the opposition. To use New Zealan...

Re: Tigers DOR rumours.

What should change is the willingness to realise that to make Tigers great again does not require a Tigers first policy in selecting a new DoR, Coach, or sticking with a traditional Tigers set up. The rugby world has moved on, and remember inbreeding does not produce good DNA. We need to tap into a...

Re: Hostile "Tigers Fan" in the Holland & Barratt stand

Kornboy - if you read my original post, it wasn't just the fact that he assumed my son didn't go to private school because he had actually corrected him on something he'd said and therefore didn't show him respect (!) but what really made my blood boil was the continued rant at my 14 year old and t...

Re: Hostile "Tigers Fan" in the Holland & Barratt stand

He went to suggest that my son clearly didn't go to private school as he had not respect for his elders And he clearly did, since he's got the kind of in-built arrogance and sneery outlook at anyone else below him that is far too prevalent in private schools. What a prat. And you could just as easi...
