Still no good news on the injury front

Post by Ian Cant » Fri Mar 29, 2019 9:11 pm

It seems that both Ben Youngs and Jonah Holmes might not make the Exeter game! Maybe, given the huge games v Newcastle and Bristol, Geordan will have to hope those chosen to play against Exeter can get at least a point from the game!
Worth and Bateman probably out too then add in those who have been out for long periods, Thomo, TV and Denton, no wonder Geordan has struggled to get the team to gel.
You would think our luck would surely change but we have been saying that for the past few seasons.

Well, if believing some rumours (nothing more), Jonah may not make any more games this season at all.....tbc

What are you implying Whitecap? Long-term injury or is he going to the West? (Got it right this time 😂)

So does that imply there is perhaps something amiss with Tigers training/conditioning/technique/tactics?

Well that just about puts the tin lid on things. We seem to be cursed with bad luck this season, as nothing is going right. :smt022

Geordan was on BBC Radio Leicester explaining the injury list had become “ ridiculous with Ben Youngs shoulder injury ( done with England) and Jonah Holmes a badly twisted knee struggling to be fit for Exeter” . Then he later said the injuries might be long term! I’m hoping it is a smoke screen!

Given how this season is going he's probably down playing it, in reality half the squad have SARS and Boris will be playing scrum half next week.

Well last season was ok-ish on the injury front we just lost Genge, Toomua and Tuilagi for periods that’s all.

Is this due, I ponder, to the type of fitness programme we use. It's all extremely disconcerting. :smt102

Thinking about it I would say no. Looking at some of this season's injuries: Ben Youngs injured with England; Dave Denton concussed in a match; Telusa injured in a match; Guy Thopmson injured in a match; Sam Harrison has had a couple of concussions sustained during matches; George Worth injured in the warm up. I believe Adam Thompstone and Matt Smith were injured while playing also. I'm not sure about Jonah Holmes.
Tigers for the premiership and European Cup. Get behind the team and make some noise!!

We may as well just say so as it's something else for people to moan about.

Even though our training methods were looked into a few seasons ago when we suffered with a long list of injuries and the findings were that we were not doing anything wrong, you may as well say the club are doing something wrong as it seems this is the only way you'll be happy. :smt023
