Jordan definitely needs to get rid of that junior rugby white line fever and get his head up,butchered two tries for me
He needs to play what is in front of him. There were chances and passes that he should have been aware of but he is young and talented and as long as the Tigers can keep him; he will be just fine?

Don't necessarily like to single a player out, but Olowofela was awful yesterday.

Thought he had the look of a racehorse about him when he first played... yesterday showed he's not go it 'upstairs' (to be kind I'll add) yet. Absolutely terrible decision making and (as other have said) he never backed his pace once. Maybe he needs to play in a team in form and full of confidence... but at this stage another prospect we've turned into a 'rabbit in the headlights'!
It was always likely, they were much bigger than most other backs as juniors and didn't need to develop any rugby nous whatsoever to be noticed.
You go with what the pro's say but I could see it coming a mile off.
Five years ago other clubs were taking 16 year olds with superior footwork potential to combat the lack of space whilst Leicester were taking big and tall bearded Bill's.
What we see now on the pitch is the result of a complete lack of forward thinking.
The only one they got right was Umaga and they let him go.

It's not what he has done, it's what he will do.
This is a serious conversation to be had in several years time.
He will be better than Cipriani in my opinion.

I dont see it,hes suffering a bit from second season syndrome but Marcus Smith is by far the better prospect,imo of course.

Time will tell won't it, I'll be the one saying I told you so!
Watch the recent Premiership Shield highlights, I was at that game and can tell you there was a lot more to see in kicking and tactical team nous etc, Umaga doesn't just do the flashy bits, he also does the simple stuff extremely well!

I'll keep an eye out for him in future but the AP is a big step up. Good luck to him!

Just read an article in the Independent about our predicament. It makes very sad reading.

Cohen has been tweeting complaints re the press reporting. He needs to open his eyes to the truth. :smt018 :smt018

I saw that, very strange. You'd think he'd keep his mouth shut on the issue of head coaches after the whole Worldwide Search fiasco.

Yes, it would appear that he believes he and the rest of the BOD are blameless!
