Re: Mathew Tait

I must concur. Tait appears to have a lion's heart as he plays through broken noses and such and hurtles into collisions.

We'll see if his famed jinking instinct returns as he gets more miles on his clock.

Re: Cockers and MOC

Simple Bill: just name some replacement candidates who have a better record than RC and MOC when managing within the confines of: * Premiership - or an equivalently week-in-week out threshing machine league * Salary cap equivalent to 1/10th of several HEC competitors * Huge numbers of international ...

Re: Will Hurrell

Hinckley wonderfully dogged team IIRC. Keep coming at you through the middle AND round the side if not with any particular genius or inspiration. Very tiring to oppose that.

Re: Will Hurrell

Hi TB !

You don't ship 20 point sin one half by just being unlucky. L.Lions were brilliant during a sin binning 2H.

Mind you today we just beat DMP 18-15 in a deserved win ! Whoop!

Re: Will Hurrell

Hi MJC ! Not so sure. Out team this year is significantly weakened over the one that got us promoted. We lost our TH Stef Thorpe to Moseley, Ian Lang and Ben Connett retired, Tui our back row monster moved to London to run a Bannatynes, Jordan Brookes went to Wasps via Loughborough students and a fe...

Re: How to improve Leicester Football Club

If you are in a job for 3 years and your weaknesses exposed, ways you can improve identified, and pointed out to you ad-nauseum over those three years and you singularly fail to implement those improvements isn't that a good enough reason to fire someone? As an employer I wouldn't fore anyone unles...

Re: How to improve Leicester Football Club

Tigerburnie is correct I think. Because Tigers have enjoyed periods of near monopoly of European rugby silverware it does not give us a right to expect the same every year. Victory in rugby games and PARTICULARLY in cup competitions is not determined solely by the winning team: many variables must b...

Re: How to improve Leicester Football Club

Thank you for your cogent response HF :) I think we should have won more prem finals too, but rugby players are not automatons. Look at the All blacks, magnificent players, brilliant coaches yet chokes for two decades at the RWC. I'd love to know why we play differently and worse in finals than the ...
