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

Fickle is the Tigers team sheet of recent years!
By the way before someone chops my head off I'm only joking, those injuries are a real pain!

Re: Is this year pivotal for Cockers?

The more sympathetic amongst us realise it's a very difficult job what with the salary cap, internationals, agents, injuries and snooty kids who want it all to contend with and all the time a more competitive Premiership building. Some are very unforgiving but then Cockers has appeared very unforgiv...

Re: Former player suing over concussion.

It is blatantly obvious that concussion can cause dementia , alzheimers, and brain tumours later in the players life. Witness the amount of soccer players from the 50's and 60's suffering from heading the much heavier leather balls. Insurance Companies will very soon put a lid on it all-and rugby a...

Re: New pitch for Ospreys game

This thread is about grass; nothing more and nothing less. Grass and the growing of grass is exiting, particularly if the intention is to play rugby on it. Can we therefore please keep to the subject when posting so that we sad people can be kept happy? :smt038 Yeah... can we have a separate thread...

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

My only concern is for the times when the weather or the opposition dictate the use of a big 8. I certainly am not advocating the opposite of AM's trajectory, nor the path Falcons seem to be taking with buckets of monsters. Otherwise I can, and did, see the way have the stealers really makes life d...

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

The fog won't clear for a while, but the ONLY position I'm bothered about is 8. We have a bunch of great players, including some emerging talents like Evans and Worth; however, exactly how our new philosophy will impact on the AP, I reserve judgement. Certainly having lots of quasi-7s about creates...

Re: New pitch for Ospreys game

So many different interpretations can be made of what they say this surface is and what he said it is by just taking one word and reading too much into it, it's a bit like refereeing really! Turf is the surface layer of earth held together by grass roots. With this system the grass is supported by t...

Re: "Charlton back down after attempting to gag outspoken fa

Bowden Tiger is correct....moved as not rugby related. I know and you know Tigerbeat. The rest of the forum know as well.

Re: Olympic men's 7s

I thought Fiji's static strength levels were way above anyone else. As rugby players it provides the perfect balance between taking contact and moving the ball away from contact. Rather than going at everything at 100 miles per hour they manipulate the opposition. I've watched the 7's for a few year...

Re: Olympic men's 7s

What a total contrast in the final. Rugby players versus athletes. GB did well to get the silver and I was even beginning to wonder if their name was on the gold after getting past Japan and NZ so close and then Argentina missing that drop goal and then the golden try to take the win in the semi las...

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

I must say I thought Fonua had potential if used in the right way but unfortunately last season a backwards scrum and what was a bit too lightweight having a knock on effect in many areas IMO that could've limited his opportunities. Looking at what Tigers have got I'm thinking they have a bit of add...

Re: An evening with Cockers

SIBARITE There seems that there is no awareness on this forum that some people who are ardent Tigers fans have pushed the boat out to buy season tickets for their families and whilst they would like to attend Tigers events they are priced out of the option. It is not surprising that some look on Ru...
