Re: Dan Cole Injured

Best wishes for a full and speedy recovery Dan. A bigger blow for England than Tigers IMO, we have Logo, England have a partially match-fit Wilson and Henry Thomas. England now appear even more unlikely to win the 6ns. Those who did not appreciate Coley's contributions, especially those in a white s...

Re: Tigers v Glaws

However not much is different from last season EXCEPT the first half of the season situation. People's memories of past seasons seem awfully selective. Completely agree with this! Last season I posted numerous times that time was running out for Tigers to “click” before the HC qfs and the play-offs...

Re: Transfer Rumours Thread 2013/2014 Season

Martin Gillingham has tweeted Seremaia Bai to @LeicesterTigers? according to reports in France the @CastresRugby centre has agreed to a move to @premrugby Why would we want to sign a 35 year old centre? He also plays at 10 and kicks goals so he could be coming as an experienced third option at 10. ...

Re: LV Cup v Quins/Bath

http://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/Leicester-Tigers-injury-nightmare-hits-LV-Cup/story-20477766-detail/story.html So, as well as the senior players we already knew were injured, Thacker, Pohe, Cain, Price and Harrison are also all out! A massive shame after they had all impressed in the earlier round...

Re: Who can win away in the HC

If Tigers can put out this 23: Ayerza, Youngs, Cole, Slater, Parling Croft, Crane, Salvi Youngs, Flood Allen, Tuilagi Benjamin, Tait, Goneva Hawkins, Logo, Balmain, Kitchener, Mafi, Mele, Williams, Morris/ Thompstone/ Camacho then we can definitely win in Clermont! The likelihood is that Tigers, alo...

Re: Transfer Rumours Thread 2013/2014 Season

Martin Gillingham reported on twitter earlier today that we are "on the verge of signing" Teddy Thomas according to Midi Olympique. I presume this mean Niki is off. If Thompstone and Benjamin have re-signed another winger would surely be one too many. Would be an excellent signing IMO. https://twitt...

Re: Transfer Rumours Thread 2013/2014 Season

Interesting to hear about Fonua, certainly the type of physical option RC mentioned in his post match interview with Radio Leicester. But with Pearce looking like a done deal and Crane also being offered an extension surely we'd be a little heavy on back-row resources, although with Fonua being at ...

Re: LV Cup v Quins/Bath

We need to achieve two things and hopefully 3:- 1. Rest as many senior available players as possible. Especially the likes of Ayerza. Get their bodies ready for the AP games coming up and get injured players like Kitchener; Benjamin; Tait and Crane fit. 2. Get as many fringe players game hardened a...

Re: Transfer Rumours Thread 2013/2014 Season

Further to my Bozza post, apparently some probes from AP sides offering a regular slot, not back-up, for a season also occurred. Bozza? Sorry JG - You've lost me! Boris Stankovich I presume, especially after JG's initial post. Would be a shame to see Boris leave and he would be very difficult to re...

Re: Deacs close to re-signing

Personally I think this is excellent news. Admittedly Deacs may no longer be a guaranteed starter but he epitomises the culture of the club, making him ideal for the mentoring role that KPJ Tigers mentions, and his performances, especially in the set piece, suggest he is still a good option to have,...

Re: Transfer Rumours Thread 2013/2014 Season

Suspect, or at least hope, that Pearce replacing Waldrom means that Matera will sign a longer term deal.

Re: Tigers v Treviso

Anthony Allen and David Mele were superb and changed the game when they came on, even Crane had a great game of the bench. It's amazing what a difference having a few subs makes, but Allen has to start next week and personally I would also start Mele too. Agree with this, also felt the impact of Ha...
