Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE VI: The Return of the Burns

Does the announcement of Kevin Sinfield (an arrival) mark the end of announcements of departures?

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE VI: The Return of the Burns

Given the high turnover in playing and coaching staff, I won't be expecting 5* performances from the team at the start of next season. There's a lot of familiarisation and getting everybody on the same page to be done.

Re: United Rugby Championship

I would like J the Griff to please give a reference to the reduced pools etc. I can't find any info on the new comp. Thanks The EPCR site (link on my post on the previous page) shows 4 initial rounds followed by a round of 16. I, and probably JTG, have assumed 8 pools of 3, each team playing each o...

Re: United Rugby Championship

What the Celts do with their league is their business, I am disappointed that the European Cup competition is including clubs from outside of the continent when we should be encouraging and helping the growth of the game from within. This just stinks of money again and nothing else. I agree that mo...

Re: United Rugby Championship

It really is just like the Eurovision song contest isn't it, devalued and hardly developing European Rugby bringing in Southern hemisphere teams. As for the carbon footprint with multiple flights for games, very pc. It's purely my opinion, but I disagree with every sentiment expressed. How can incl...

Re: United Rugby Championship

https://www.epcrugby.com/2021/06/16/key-2021-22-epcr-dates-announced/ 24 clubs next season. 4 pool games and then a round of 16. The rest and future not yet decided. I'm going to guess 8 groups of 3 playing home and away with top 2 going into round of 16. Or they could be silly with 6 groups of 4 🙄

Re: THE BIG ONE - Wasps (A) - 12th June 2021

Don't penalty kicks and conversions have a 1 minute time limit from when the ref blows for the penalty or try? I know that George has been known to use the full minute to wind down the clock near the end of a match, just not 100% certain when it starts.

Jut had a thought RB, on the name of the topic. Would "Return of the Fredi" work? :smt002
Whether you pronounce "Fredi" to rhyme with Freddy or Jedi is up to the reader :smt003

Re: BRISTOL (H) - 5th June 2021

No, they would not have had to go down to 13 men. On this point the ref got confused, said the worng thing, and forced Lam into backtracking on his claim that Afoa was "injured". Had the ref not incorrectly said that Bristol had to go down to 13 men then Afoa wouldn't have ce back on, the scrum wou...

Re: French rugby 2020/2021

Had a couple of very enjoyable visits to Perpignan and their supporters club, first with Scarlets (late wife Llanelli born, bred and die-hard supporter) then with Tigers. Walking to the ground through a quiet, well-to-do suburb with their typically noisy, small band (with large drum) was so incongru...

Wow!!

We won, are 6th place in the league, got to a European final and all people can do is go on and on about how poor our players are!
Some things never change. Even if we had just played and beaten the All Blacks, some player(s) would be being slated on here, along with the compliments.

Re: Worcester (A) - 29th May 2021

On the Wuss forum, they appear to be quite worried about our forwards, whether it's 1st or 2nd choice, they think they'll be in trouble, especially if our driving maul gets a shunt on. I expecting the usual from this fixture. On paper we should win pretty easily, then it turns into a battle and we ...
