Re: Transfer Rumours Thread 2013/2014 Season

On the basis that Rizzo is a definite recruit (he apparently wasn't mentioned by Cockers on the radio), the new recruits provide broadly one-for-one replacements for those senior players who are leaving/ have left the main squad: Freddie Burns - Fly Half - Toby Flood Seremaia Bai - Fly-Half/Centre -...

Re: Transfer Rumours Thread 2013/2014 Season

Hot off the press announcement from Tigers:

http://www.leicestertigers.com/news/19428.php

It all looks positive and in line with what we already know on this Thread.

Come on Kornboy - time for a big update :smt002

Re: Sale v Tigers

I've picked up somewhere that Mark Cueto won't be playing for Sale through injury - but I cannot find my source! :smt009

Re: Sale Recommendations

The biggest problem with the Sale stadium is getting away at the end - although getting TO the ground can be pretty horrible (e.g. backing up off the northbound M60 at junction 11! :smt009 ) What some friends have done - for last year's Sale v Bath game - was to take the train to Patricroft Station,...

Re: Transfer Rumours Thread 2013/2014 Season

Where have the rumours about Pohe and Hepatema come from?

I see them being referred to but I cannot see a source.

Re: Owen Williams or Freddie Burns

A question for those on this Forum who have better knowledge than me: Obviously both Williams' and Burns' best position is Fly Half. However, do either or both of them also have a "second" position where they can also play? For example, Toby he can play Inside Centre if he does not play Fly Half, an...

Re: Transfer Rumours Thread 2013/2014 Season

Hi Kornboy I note that Matthew Morgan is still on the "Rumours" list. He signed for Bristol recently (as one of their five or six announcements - one per hour - that did not include Dan Bowden :smt001 ). Maybe switch him to the "Rumours confirmed as going elsewhere block? Keep up the good work - you...

Re: Tigers v Barbarians annual game - we need your help!

I'm beginning to regret being the poster who suggested the re-introduction of the Tigers v Barbarians match :smt009 Mea culpa! When I did make the suggestion I was fully cognisant of the financial and other logistics. Which is why I said "It could perhaps be timed to be a 'warm-up' for the Baabaas w...

Re: Referees and the scrum

While we are talking about Mr Poite, I must say that some of his non-scrum related decisions were most strange in the England v Wales game :smt017 I view Poite as being "the best", so my gast was flabbered with the following: Nowell was taken out in the air by North (and into touch as I recall) and ...

Re: Tigers v Barbarians annual game - we need your help!

Maybe we should start a campaign on this Forum for the reintroduction of a Tigers v Baabaas match! :smt001 I'm not saying that it should be a full Tigers 1st XV but my mind goes back to the fantastic evening when a young Tigers team beat the South Africans not that long ago. If my memory serves me r...

Re: Transfer Rumours Thread 2013/2014 Season

All these Italian guys coming to play next year - I think that there has simply been a big mix-up! Maybe they are confusing the Red, White & Green of Tigers with the Italian Flag!? :smt002

Re: Castros' Replacement - Jerome Shuster - Where is he?

If he is off, then with Boris also going, it suggests that Tigers will be seriously looking at the Prop options. Arguably there are then only three well-established/ experienced props -Ayerza, Cole & Fluffy - with three or so promising/ up-and-coming props - Balmain, Bristow and the Italian lads. Th...

Re: Salary Cap increas confirmed

No matter what the level of the Salary Cap, the key question is whether a club has enough income to actually get anywhere near it! Tigers probably can afford the new £5m Salary Cap but there will be several others that do not have anything like the income. Just look at the (average) attendances at m...
