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

Perhaps not??????? Martin Gillingham has tweeted this today;- Immediate move of @MaximeMermoz1 from @RCTofficiel to @LeicesterTigers taken a bit of a twist. France centre is in Toulon squad for Saturday Why does this seem to be an echo of recent attempts to sign Top players? Gazumping seems to have...

Re: Owen Williams Confirmed to Gloucester

Why sign Toomua a world class centre to then play him at 10? Why re-sign Flood its never good to go backwards. Why sign another unknown when we did that with Williams? Why not instead for the first time ever just let us have two top class fly halfs ie Burns and Ford? Can we all be clear that Bath w...

Re: Harry Thacker

umm, not sure about that, but if Harry had some of Charlies size and weight then he would make a decent hooker, but at present we just cannot afford to play an undersize hooker, the last 2 weeks have shown that we have to match size of the opposition if we want to go forward. As we controlled the s...

Re: Harry Thacker

I really must be watching a different game to most others! I thought he cost us the game with a shockingly poor pass that gifted Wasps possession that Cole ended up being carded from. Not a perfect performance I'd agree but he showed touches of class for someone so young - a good fend, footwork, ou...

Re: George Ford

If Burns is a better player than Ford why is he not in the England Elite squad? Just asking..... Tom Youngs is a better player than Hartley yet he isn't in the EPS. Enough said. Ford is the better player - he has been representing England at every age group, and is the first choice 10 for England. ...

Re: George Ford

Seems abit too late for that unfortunatly. Freddie seemed pretty phaed by that question. http://sport.bt.com/burns-tigers-will-always-do-whats-best-for-them-as-rumours-swirl-91364117636792 Did he? I think he answered that well. Naturally I'd be keen for an improvement in any position and the incumb...

Re: George Ford

BREAKING! Eggchasers podcast Tim says, whilst trying to aquire GF this season, Cockers offered Bath Freddie Burns as a replacement. Apparently Burns was not informed but found out, and(In a round about way)went to Cockers office, said it to Cockers who replied with something like 'Yeah, deal with i...

Re: George Ford

In the RP is says that Bath will not allow to Ford to return to the Tigers? If this is so can someone enlighten me on why? If he has triggered his release clause as papers suggest,can he not go wherever he wishes or am I missing something? It's presumably because they have another clause in his con...

Re: The old Harry Thacker debate

I wouldn't take much notice of Flats, one of the most average scrummagers that I have ever witnessed, and a former Bath player, consider several years of no serious title challenging from Tigers and seeing the young man called Cole who minced him for baby food having to put up with it would suit hi...

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

Sibarite criticises Cocker for not being upfront with players and quotes Niall Morris who hardly played for two seasons and although given every chance to regain fitness was unable to do so and has since retired. Had he been given a new contract what would sibarite have been saying about Cocker now...

Re: George Ford

We know that what Ford says and what happens could be two different things. It is quite possible he will return to Tigers (indeed likeley given his longstanding friendships with YBY, DC etc), but unless Cohen has had a stupendous brainfart it would have to be a personal buy-out. So really we don't ...

Re: George Ford

Given that Ford is the highest earner by a stretch at Bath IMO we can do far better for the £££. But then I don't rate him as an all-round 10, exceptional going forward but that's it. I could almost taste the scenario - Ford decides to stay put; within a year he is dropped/injured and not only lose...

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

This from twitter @midi_olympique claims that Mourad has made it his "personal challenge" to bag Ford & bring him to the Mayol The bell has tolled, and not for Tigers. Only the RFU stands in his way (well, England caps, or so we are led to believe). Personally, quite happy without Ford, IMO like hi...
