Re: Team vs Saints

We may be in 11th, and at any other time that would convert to bottom of the table. But this was and East Midlands derby, forget whether we played well or not Northampton couldn't beat a side with only 13 players on the pitch!! :smt005

Re: England Players Agree to a Salary cut for 1 year

So if Manu has accepted this. Could it or would this have any affect on his legal dispute with Tigers, if indeed he is actually in a legal dispute with Tigers....
The basis for the wage cuts are the same, so why is one acceptable and another not?
Obvs amounts will be different...

Re: Midweek Game - Wed 09 Sep Away to Wasps

My only worry is that G.M. is still a big presence at the club. Great player though he was, he appears to have a nagative affect on the team somehow. Is this the same GM that has overseen getting a new head coach, backs coach, and fitness whatever he is. As well as overseeing the contract changes t...

Re: Midweek Game - Wed 09 Sep Away to Wasps

4. There have been heavy losses all across the Premiership since the restart. To name a few: Bristol 47 - 10 Saints Bath 40 - 15 Worcester Exeter 59 - 7 Worcester Sale 40 - 7 Bristol This is interesting, as even when a good side like Bristol and Northampton put a kids team out they get pummelled. Y...

Re: Midweek Game - Wed 09 Sep Away to Wasps

Aside from the usual cliches, I'm a bit concerned that this seems to suggest that GM IS still picking the side , which makes me wonder why we bothered to hire Steve Borthwick? Why bring in a proven international coach but still leave selection to a guy who's record speaks for itself- and not in a g...

Re: A new defence coach?

In a few months we'll have the complete set here. We've been waiting a long time for this, so waiting a little bit longer shouldn't be too hard. Start to judge them half way through the next season. Even Mike Ford was being 'played' out of position until recently.

Re: Cards and punishment

just watched it and it looks like actually Piutau connected first after some shoving and Kitchener trying to punch him but missed/got blocked then they both kept going and Kitchen punched Piutau a couple more time on the floor. Probably fair to get the same bans IMO, although you could argue Kitchen...

Re: Midweek Game - Wed 09 Sep Away to Wasps

The European cup is something to actually play for that the league doesn't give us at the moment. So I think this is where a different mindset comes in. That and the Saints game if the new boys* buy in and understand the relevance of it. The rest of the prem games are just pre-season practice games....

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

Oh well, here we go. Hope we've got room in the salary cap!! :smt009 Doesn't it depend on what year it falls into? Presumably everything after the end of June falls into the 2020-21 cap which is the year of earnings these guys are missing out on. As they won't have played for us in that year could ...

Re: Champions Cup format for 2020/21 announced

Might have put a slightly different slant on this season if we'd have known about the 8th position earlier, but we were still probably too far away in reality.

Could give a bit of added impetus if the coaches want to use it on the final run in though.

Re: Reversing the great schism. Is it an option now?

Not for me. I moved to Halifax from Leicester when I was 16 (i'm 44 now) and have lived in Leeds for the last 20 years, after an 18 month return to Leics in my 20's. I've played and watched league but I just find it boring. I like the 'chess' element of union as well as the unpredictable nature of t...

Re: Gloucester vs. Tigers - Sun 30 Aug 20 (1630)

Sod all is happening in the prem this season. We have several new players and a new coaching set up. Why not let them get on with it and see where it takes us next season. If we're bottom of the table half way through next season and performances haven't changed then start moaning again. I just don'...
