Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 6

Firstly, it's an unsubstantiated rumour. Secondly, there's a big difference between "I want out" and "I'd like to go early but, if I can't, I totally understand and I'll fully commit when selected" so - it's wrong to criticize without knowing the context. Thirdly, he has 4 games left to determine w...

Re: Proof if proof were needed

So everything is all open and above board? Come on guys apply some logic! Right now we are trying desperately to hang on to Manu Tuilagi while being told we are limited by the cap. And it won't be long before we are trying to hang on to Ellis Genge. As soon as one of our star players contract is up ...

[email protected] is at Allianz Park where @Saracens are missing six England players but have still named 10 internationals.

plus absence of Liam Williams and Jacques Burger, Sean Maitland, Marcello Bosch et all.

Re: Gordon Banks OBE R.I.P.

Gordon Banks was the reason I swapped allegiance/passion from football and Leicester City to Rugby and Leicester Tigers. Until 1967 I followed the City everywhere home and away, Banks was my hero. To accommodate Peter Shilton Leicester City released him to Stoke for £50 000, a world cup winner and u...

Re: Bristol v Tigers

Ok finally I have been driven to despair and feel the need to get something off my chest. I was at the game yesterday pulling my hair out. Despite being a Tigers supporter for over 40 years I don't profess to be a Rugby expert, because I have neither played the game at a good level nor officiated it...

Re: Ben Kay on Rugby Tonight

When has it ever been said that Ben Kay is involved in coaching. He and Underwood are the directors who report back on the playing side to the board, which is why he made his statement on the telly. This is just like in a normal company where directors look after Sales or Purchasing It was publicly...

Here is my twopence worth. Who would I like to see? Any of Rob Baxter, Pat Lamb or Joe Schmidt. Right dreaming over it ain’t gonna happen so let’s get realistic. I can’t believe some of the names being banded around on here, from previous failures elsewhere Mallinder, Lancaster etc, to the Leicester...

Re: Tudor Thomas RIP

A sad loss, many happy memories of a faithful servant to the club.

Hopefully the spirit of Tudor will live on in these days of a money driven business, we all want success but at what cost? Hopefully not the loss of everything that Tudor stood for.

Condolences to all his family.

Yes and Farrell proved beyond any doubt that's he's a better 10 than 12 and a far,far better 10 than GF. I would seriously think about Farrell,Loz,Daly in SA.
Your opinion which you express adnausium in the forlorn hope it becomes accepted fact.

Fortunately opinions vary!

Re: Bring back Cockers

Here we go again. What makes me laugh about the OP is they keep trotting this out at the the slightest opportunity, because of their obsession with Cockerill. My response as always, because I know they refuse to acknowledge it, is if we are going to bring anyone back there is someone far better qual...

Re: The Clash

Back after a great game. Here’s my player ratings for Tigers. Genge - 6.5 Deducted half a point for getting a penalty reversed. Great at scrum time but not so prominent in the lose. Still a force of nature. Polata-Nau - 7 Proven to be a shrewd acquisition. Has nailed down the starting birth in my o...
