Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE V: Borthwick Strikes Back

IDK people complain about signing coaches with a limited club variety and people complain about coaches coaching too many teams. It looks to me that each role has been a promotion so it shows ambition to progress I said I was not knowledgeable but do you think that each appointment really was a pro...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE V: Borthwick Strikes Back

IDK people complain about signing coaches with a limited club variety and people complain about coaches coaching too many teams. I am not complaining, I'm just asking questions, as to me, not knowing too much about those places/teams, they didn't sound too high profile and were they well spread out...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE V: Borthwick Strikes Back

With these guys going out on loan, and speculation that further may join them, the journalists at the Rugby Paper (Jon Newcombe) still says that the Premiership Cup is returning midweek from April. Going to have to have some players to play in that! Tbh if the Prem cup is taking place (especially i...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE V: Borthwick Strikes Back

Some are speculating that David Williams might go out on loan. He is listed, and pictured in team colours, on the Nottingham senior squad for their upcoming season. Looks as if he has already returned. So I just checked when he extended, according to this article the agreement for him to stay this ...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE V: Borthwick Strikes Back

Leigh Jones joins as a General Manager of Rugby role on May 1st.

It seems to be a bit of an amalgamation of Jan McGintey & Geordan Murphy's previous role, with the on field solely down to Borthwick.

Re: Has Rugby Got a Refereeing Problem?

At international level there should be sensors in the ball, and probably at premiership level too. Take away this direction of hands rubbish. I think I'm right in saying this is currently being trialled in Super Rugby... can you imagine it immediate and live decisions on forward passes. If it works...

It appears that at least the ref is open about having made a mistake IMO having acknowledged it rather than bury a head in the sand it shows he's more capable of not repeating the mistakes again going forward.

Re: Next up London Irish - home - 5th March 2021

The more I think about it, given the level of rotation in the squad, the more it seems to make this a must win game. Irish are in a similar position to us mid table looking to get into those top 6 spots. We can't let teams like that do the double on us. Team I'd go with 1. De Bruin 2. Montoya 3. Col...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE V: Borthwick Strikes Back

I will say in the Olowfela press release Borthwick sounds like he's still interested in him "I am excited to see the progress he makes in Super Rugby and am confident he will represent our club in a way that will make everybody at Tigers proud." I also think loans down under make sense if...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE V: Borthwick Strikes Back

The fact it's a loan means that there may be some way for him to get back into the reckoning for a place. That or we couldn't find anyone to pay enough wages for him to be tempted to leave, so had to share wages I think there is a way back for all of them except one. I'm surprised with all of the o...

Re: Has Rugby Got a Refereeing Problem?

At the top level, there needs to be some proper tear downs of games for referees. One of those where every ruck gets viewed from multiple angles, away from time pressures the game, actually review each and every jackel attempt, every clear out, understand what can and can't be deemed legal. Then loo...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE V: Borthwick Strikes Back

I think the squad is in a really good place for next season. Only possible exceptions are: Prop We're probably a body short if De Bruin goes. Think this is solved if Venter joins, especially as Whitcombe looked good yesterday. Venter is now confirmed to Edinburgh, though Van Wyk from Saints is supp...
