Why did Boris lead the team out yesterday?

Post by Latecomer » Sun Apr 13, 2014 8:22 am

It wasn't his last home match. It wasn't his 50th or 100th match. It wasn't even his birthday. Anyone know?

It could have been his last start at Welford Road........expect him to be on the bench against Saracens

Tigerbeat expects to be on the bench next week? Really?? Is that because of the shortage of props with Mulipola and Cole injured?

Because it was quite likely his last home match as a starter, he may feature against saracens but I suspect only from the bench.

And probably because Toby will be leading them out against Sarries.
No home semi yet!

Not so sure he will - even if Floody is in the starting 15 I would imagine that Slater will stay as skipper. Unbeaten in the job so far, Floody off to France for next season......

In the league anyway. :smt002
Whatever you do, don't argue. We might never hear from you again.

I meant because it might be his last 'home' game.

If it wasn't such an important game, I'd love to see Chutes, Boris and Toby milling about on the pitch, and the mascots run down the tunnel first, take the players by the hand and lead them onto the pitch for a pre-match photo op!

Chutes announced his retirement today, with immediate effect. Hopefully he will be given a rousing send off at the Sarries match.
Brilliant servant to the club :smt023 :smt023 :smt023
