    Well since Glous have one we should have one.

    Likely 23 (if all fit) for me would be:

    1) Ayerza (should have him all start of season for the first time in ages)
    2) Youngs/Ghiraldini
    3) Cole (Although Mlipola will start till November)
    4) Parling
    5) Slater
    6) Croft
    7) Salvi
    8) Barbieri
    9) Youngs
    10) Williams/Burns
    11) Goneva
    12) Allen
    13) Manu
    14) Morris
    15) Tait

    16) Ghiraldini/Youngs
    17) Rizzo
    18) Mulipola (Balmain)
    19) Kitchener
    20) Mafi/Matera/Crane
    21) Mele
    22) Burns/Williams
    23) Loamanu/Scully

    I am very happy with that even with Cole out till November we will have Balmain in, some big positional battles @ 2 and 10. And that bench has some very attacking players on it. Also keen on the Bai signing adds some experience at 10 and 12.

    Excited about the depth and for once in a while I feel that the squad has enough size to challenge Europe and the Premiership and could cope with the injuries we had last season (although hopefully wont have to).

    Also Phil Blake as new Defence coach.

    Don't think he's quite THAT good! :p But yeah I can't wait for the season to start and it just ended. Started following Prem rugby partway through last year, looking forward to watching from the start. Go Tigers!

    If only mind you I like the contrast Scully and Morris give to Goneva style of play. Hopefully with Loamanu it will mean Goneva can stay on the wing when Manu is away as although he is a very good back up 13 he is a WC winger.

    Okay now that Mafi is gone and isn't playing this season for us I thought I will do a breakdown of the current Leicester Tigers Depth chart () = Rumoured player.

    LH: Ayerza, Rizzo, Mulipola, Bristow, Brugnara
    H: Youngs, Ghiraldini, Briggs, Thacker
    TH: Cole, Mulipola, Balmain, Pasquali
    LK: Parling, Kitchener, De Cheves, Price
    LK: Slater, Deacon, (Thorn)
    BF: Croft, Gibson, Matera, Loamanu, Slater, Crane
    OF: Salvi, Matera, Gibson, Barbieri
    N8: Barbieri, Crane, Pearce, Gibson, Loamanu

    FH: Burns, Williams, Bai
    IC: Allen, Bai, Hepetema, Pohe
    OC: Manu, Loamanu, Goneva, Bai, Smith, Hepetema, Pohe, camacho
    W; Goneva, Morris, Loamanu, Scully, Benjamin, Thompstone, Hamilton, Camacho, Smith

    I blame the Lancaster love in this forum goes into whenever England plays it is sickening, it drives a lot of the Tigers supporters away.

    I brave on here due to not fearing the evil.

    I am a holy man in an unholy world.

    Shocked when I heard this last night on the tigers show. should be good for a season and I suppose a decent last minute replacement for Mafi. Anyone going on the 5th to the families day?

    Brad Thorn is a great signing, he was at Leinster a matter of months and became a fan favourite. Such a work horse, he'll fit in superbly with the Tigers.
