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

The Ford suggestion seems to be gathering pace - I'd personally be very chuffed about it.

Re: Dan Carter

Be very careful what you wish for. Remember what they did to Saints at Franklins Gardens year before last, and that was when Mallinder's team selections weren't as bad as Cockers How would your selections differ from Cockers' and why would they be better? Show your working. Also provided it isn't a...

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

From what I gather Tait is going to France by the sounds of it. I would also say 15 and midfield need looking at TBH. In that case agreed on both points then. A good alternative 2nd-choice centre (or even someone who could push Manu) would be ideal - having to play a full back and a wing there isn'...

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

Liam Williams is Apprently looking around Saracens the highest bidder currently @ 300k according to Walesonline. Tigers need a 15, and he was linked with us a couple years ago. We've got one: George Worth. He wouldn't cost £300K/year (everyone's always banging on about how we don't promote enough f...

The working holiday visa has been replaced with this. http://www.gov.uk/tier-5-youth-mobility/overview Lots of conditions. e.g. only eligible from certain countries, 18 to 30 only, 2 years maximum, can't work as a "professional sportsperson (e.g. coach)". I find it difficult to imagine how the latt...

Not without a 15 a side cap. Vunibaka taught us that.

Re: 2015/16 Squad/Contracts/Rumours and Transfers Thread Par

Pasquali now confirmed that he is off https://twitter.com/TizPasquali/status/735074802956963841 Wish him good fortune - anyone any idea where he's off to? Nothing against the guy but can anyone explain the point of such signings that hardly ever play a first team game and then leave after 1 or 2 ye...

Can you do a similar sketch on the Comicbook Kid from Toulon, please, he often appears just as irascible.
I think "Gold Platinum" was probably intended as part of the parody.

Re: 2015/16 Squad/Contracts/Rumours Thread Part 3

I'll suggest a better option, maybe give Jake Farnworth or another a go at 2 and Will Owen or another at 7 and maybe they will do their jobs well and the others can do theirs! Completely agreed. Those comparing him to Back in late 90s/early 00s are comparing chalk and cheese. Rugby in last 10 years...

Re: Bill W RIP

A valued contributer to the forum - if mostly for jest and potentially a few shandies deep.

He was a lovely man to have met once in person - and a consistent feature of the board. He will be missed.
