Re: Manu Tuilagi

Next season is the test for Diamond - he's got an excellent team and Sarries will be absent. Premiership final and knockout stages of Champions Cup should be the expectations.

Nick Abendanon has signed a 2-year deal for french club Vannes (official).
From his previous quotes, it sounds as though he would have prioritised Premiership over D2 so it seems likely we didn't make him an offer. Or it was a rubbish offer.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Episode 3 The revenge of the Contracts.

So weve lost Manu to those northern giants Sale then? Confirmed? I mean Newcastle is there only competition up North so not sure how big a title that is but given that Telegraph clearly has a leak yes. Assume this falls outside the 'gentleman' s agreement' although it is Steve Diamond :smt005 I sus...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Episode 3 The revenge of the Contracts.

I would imagine that as the players have been announced as leaving, everything has been negotiated and settled. The idea of just terminating a player's contract and him then suing for the difference in salary when he signs for less elsewhere is extreme. Why would the club want to have that uncertain...

Re: Manu Tuilagi

True I don’t know what they are being paid but am 100% sure that Genge or Ford could have more or less named their price at other clubs. My main issue is people banging on about Slater and Burns years after they have left which I think most posters find tedious :smt003 Slater and Burns had to be sa...

Re: Manu Tuilagi

The expectation of loyalty in sport is ridiculous, as though it should be some kind of selfless eutopia where everyone acts like Jesus. Get down off your crucifix, it's just a game (or business, depending on your point of view). The club did what was best for the club. The players who stayed did wha...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Episode 3 The revenge of the Contracts.

Does anyone know whether the salary cap has to include players no longer at the Club but for whom Tigers have a residual contractual obligation? In other words if we're topping up Manu's salary elsewhere does that reduce spending power on our own squad? The cap includes any "payment or benefit in k...

Re: Transfers and Rumours Non-Tigers 2019-20

It would be a shame to see Manu play for another Premiership team, but I suppose that's life. I wish him well, but it would really hurt to see him win anything with Sale! Not sure how I would feel if I was a Sale player who had just taken a pay cut and then they announce they have enough cash to sig...

Re: Finishing this season

I an hoping we use the younger 9's with Ford a fair bit as it gets then used to playing with him & puts more responsibility on YBY when he plays we others at 10 & hopefully pressure on his starting position. If nothing else the nailed on starters need to be looking over their shoulders, come 20/21 ...

Re: New Kit

Well GM previously said the away strip would be 'marmite', so maybe it's a yucky brown colour! :smt042 It does intrigue me to see if and how they manage to incorporate the words of the club 'ethics' onto the shirts, as he also alluded to previously. Or maybe that was a little ruse? So yellow and bl...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Episode 3 The revenge of the Contracts.

If we are going to spend up to the cap, and the cap doesn't decrease until 2021/22, then why did we need to give players a pay cut now? Do they mean we will spend up to the 21/22 cap? Or is it that everyone has needed to take a pay cut so that marquee players are no longer required and all wages now...

Re: Finishing this season

The idea of giving players experience and not worrying completely about results is great, but we all know that in reality if Borthwick loses his first 3 or 4 matches, he's going to come under huge pressure. There's also no point throwing too many youngsters in together and risk them getting trounced...

That can't be true, he followed Tigers on a social media. Unless it's just a short term deal until he joins Leicester for next season?

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Episode 3 The revenge of the Contracts.

I imagine Murphy is extremely relieved with Borthwick finally on board. Keeping the seat warm for so long can be pretty exhausting, especially in such a high pressure situation. Although I don't think he did a great job (it is a results based business after all), well done to him for keeping it toge...

Re: Manu Tuilagi

If it is Exeter it will be interesting how Manu gets on. Secondly,Rowe has just been quoted: “If Sandy Park doesn’t open soon it will be catastrophic for the club!” Two very different outlooks: one from Baxter about the exciting, young, signing (optimistic) then from Rowe who is now seriously worri...
