Re: Sale away (Yes...Enya...zzzzzzzzz)

I'm struggling to see Tigers win this one, but the sight of Genge and BOC on the teamsheet gives me at least a little hope. Toomua is obviously a big loss, but maybe Ford will be more comfortable when he is the only general in the backline - I do wonder whether having 2 playmakers in a team confuses...

Re: 9 points for try/conversion and 1 minute scrums

The choke tackle, ruining rugby matches since 2011.

Easy one for the law-makers to deal with, and it baffles me that they haven't.

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non Tigers 2016/17

Gloucester’s defence has improved I just don’t think they have ever recovered from that thrashing at Sale points difference wise and the 43 points at Kingholm last week v Bath or the 46 points v Exeter or the 49 points v Wasps It has already been decided that Ackerman is a genius. Your facts are wa...

Re: MOC to be sacked?

2 points for me,Chiefs have got 60 odd players in their cap so it isn't always paying more that gets the best,its value for money. But it's also absolutely tied in with the coaches,if you put together an AP XV you wouldn't get many Chiefs players but theyre still the best drilled and know exactly w...

Re: Squad Analysis

With regards to the lineout, I think it comes down to ability to execute under pressure. We've seen it in so many other areas of this team and it seems to be a real problem. We all know they can execute a lineout in training, and they can make simple passes and catches in training. But far too often...

Re: 9 points for try/conversion and 1 minute scrums

Rolling subs might be a good idea. Other than that I have little interest. I was wondering why Lynagh, Campese etc were hyping it up so much, then I read the line "bankrolled by a billionaire". So it's a vanity project for a rich guy who wants to create a legacy, and a few in rugby are happy to take...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2017/18 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3!

You got to say our turnover of players is a red flag to issues. Whether it is a cause of the issues or simply symptomatic I'm not quite sure. But you look at the success stories of recent times, Chiefs, Sarries, now Falcons it's built over a period of time and the turnover limited. We just seem to ...

Re: Squad Analysis

I agree with most of that, the only different opinions I would have are: Veainu - Not so much of the magic of late, and his defence has been rather weak. Possibly gives away as many tries as he creates. Jury is out for me. Genge and Toomua - Should be in their own category titled "players to build a...

Re: MOC to be sacked?

Some great points Tiglon but here's a poser. Would we have made the playoffs with Baxter,Hepher and Hunt in charge? For me a million percent yes! Maybe, but we don't know. I agree with RagingBull below and would say that if Baxter etc joined us at the same time as MOC, then quite possibly no, we st...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2017/18 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3!

Matt toomua going to Saints so we can free up cap to sign Quade Cooper I think the plan is to have Ford at 10, Cooper at 12 but in the international period it gives us a international 10 that's available. Shame as Toomua has been a standout...... :smt030 :smt030 :smt030 This is a joke, right?! Not ...
