Has anyone seen MOC & Theresa May in the same room, is Hard Work on the training ground Tigers strong & stable??

Maybe when we don't make the champions cup for next season the Board will wake up finally wake up where we are as a team, but I am not holding my breath.

Its not imho player quality, we have a good squad, its coaching & selection that seem to be at fault. The board cannot be faulted for the off field position, its their input to the on field matters that are woefully substandard.
To win is not as important as playing with style!

It’s time that one or two people,at the club, put their hands up and admitted something is amiss, and what they intend to do to rectify some of the problems at least.
I’m a bit cheesed with reading the rugby pages in the Leicester Mercury. It’s always going to be ok by the next game. Do interviewees really believe it? Surely not.
At least I don’t think it will get any worse. It can’t can it?

So the majority whether a pro or contra all seem to agree the season is a write off. Surely just the time for our leaders to get the Chop...

Just back from Gloucester and have to say that was poor. After 5 phases our attack looked clueless and the forwards looked knackered after the first half. Ford had a very poor game and we looked better with toomua at 10. Can't see us beating many more teams playing the way we are.

Always said give J Ford a chance but at the end of the day he is a championship standard player. Really can’t expect anything more from him and the club should be ashamed of their recruitment.
Which DOR oversaw his recruitment and which coach wanted him in the first place?

Maybe his signing was a condition of George signing, I will only come if you take my brother also, I haven't got my dad to live with, so I want my brother? Anyone know, Do they live together?

No they don't. Dad is in USA and George is in Braybrooke. Don't know where Joe is.

Sadly I missed the game, but from reports it sounds as though the difference between the teams was Mulipola's yellow card and the 10 points Glouc scored while he was off the pitch.

I'm curious why we looked better with Toomua at 10, even though we scored 2 tries with Ford there and zero after the change was made? I wonder if there are a few preconceptions clouding judgement?

If Tigers were woeful (other than BOC and Toomua) then why did Glouc, coached by the genius Ackermann, only win by 7 at home?

They’re are work in progress but unlike us are showing progress. Plus we defended reasonably well
