I difficult one that with the quality of the players who have played for us in the past and the present players.....

So I'll just choose from current players and say Geordan Murphy
Wood Pecker Tigers

Agree with Wood Pecker - Too many past and present to piuck just one.

Even just from the current squad I'd still need to split into Backs and Forwards.

Backs: Geordan.

Forwards: Castro
Leicester Football Club.
First Back to Back European Champions.
First Club to win an Away Guiness Premiership Play-off Semi-Final.
British by Birth - Welsh by the Grace of God

Have to agree with this, Geordie is just sublime and Castro is immense.

We've had more than our share of heroic players over the years.

All time ? Johnno.

Runs him close ? Backy, Wheeler, and a cast of thousands

I really like and rate a whole lot of our current team. Unfair to pick.

Okay. This is going back a good while. But when I started playing as a 9 years ago, nearly twenty years ago in fact, my hero was the then Tigers scrumhalf Adel Kardooni. He still has to be my fave of all time! I just idolised him as a kid.

Cussie for his immense talent and ability to change a game with sublime subtlety! Remember the move where he put the ball on the ground for Dodge to pick up.......quality personified!

I agree with Wiggo...

I remember that move clearly, I was standing on the hill where the Alliance&Leicester stand is now. Les Cusworth could have made a great Tigers/England back coach.

Dusty Hare - and not just because of the points he scored. For me, he epitomised the Tigers spirit and he was a net contributor to the club well beyond his playing days.

I've not been watching Tigers all that long, only since last season so it would be impossible for me to say my favourite all-time player. :smt002

If Im remaining impartial I would have to say Floody - I used to watch him when he played for the Falcons as well... and it seems he just gets better and better.

If impartiality is going out the window well its not hard to guess what my answer would be :smt043 unfortunately I never got to see him at his best :smt010
