Right it's time to wrap Bai and Burns in cotton wool. Those boys are to be subbed the second any game looks to be assured and are not to play in the LV. Got to feel for Owen he's had no luck this season.

The kit provider will not be Canterbury.

Although I really like their casual clothes their match Kit has been fairly poor esp the away shirts.

Louis Deacon retires. Not surprising but still sad that a great servant to the club couldn't run out at WR one last time for the standing ovation he deserves. He is coaching the Spanish team part time, that's got to be an alright gig.

Deacon was very much underrated, but he was a real workhorse of a player. I never liked seeing him on the team sheet against Glaws.

Leicester Tigers chief executive Simon Cohen expects utility back Niall Morris to stay at the Premiership club beyond the end of the season, while contract talks with flanker Julian Salvi are ongoing.
Morris, 26, is out of contract in the summer and the Irishman has been linked with a return to former club Leinster.
"Everything's pretty much agreed with Niall. I'd be surprised if he was going," Cohen told BBC Radio Leicester.

The rest of the article is interesting:

Contract talks with flanker Julian Salvi are ongoing but Cohen said the 29-year-old's future remains unclear.
The Australian has played in every match for the Tigers so far this season.
Cohen said: "There's still a discussion. He's played week in, week out, but we are limited in what we can spend in the cap and we do have to get some backs in, so we'll see where that goes.

Do we need backs plural? A replacement for Tait and then I'd rather we retained and backed the younger guys. Bryant, Roberts, Catchpole, Thacker and Pohe if he stays will be adequate back up to the midfield. The wingers haven't been the problem this season.

Agreed will give them a very good test to see where they stand.

TBH wondering how much of it was cockers call?

a must win away game with 2 rookie centres, isn't usually his thing.

Well with no Allen his hand was kind of forced. Could have played Bai to start with but glad he is giving the youngsters a go. Not sure who else would have made the call and Cockers must have given it the go ahead anyway

Bai seems to have been playing as a crash ball centre - may as well use the pocket rocket instead.

Well he had options. He could have recalled Bai instead of benching him and Loamano is supposedly fit. The longer he stays in the job the more Cockers seems willing to back the younger options. I hope they prove him right.

How did Burns manage that? If he was seeing stars that might explain the late penalty miss.

Need Bryant on the bench if Burns starts or in the ten shirt of he isn't. We can't have no tactical kicking option and no direction in the backs again.

We need results. Every game is a must win if we want to make the play offs. Even if that means sending the academy/A team out against Exeter.

Yep. Let the academy and A league boys try and bring home the silverware.

I'd happily go with a team of;

Brugnara, Thacker, Pasquali
Peterson, Whetton
Milne, Pearce, Gibson
Mele, Bryant
Hempetema, Loamano/Smith/Pohe/Thacker
Benjamin, Bell, Scully

I suppose we have Bell and Bai anyway. Be harsh to deny Bryant an age grade debut on the off chance he might get a bench spot.

Nice to see a range of our young talent getting under 20s game time. That Owen, Beckett, Thacker, Bryant and Williams.

Burns was excellent in the first half versus LI. Need him against Sale. Sale minus Cipriani is a different beast as well. That might help us.

Manu (and Chris Pennell) to travel with England Squad to Dublin. I can only assume this is to provide cover.

WHAT THE CHUFFING HELL???????????????????????

When did Manu last play - 18 minutes against Ulster, 18th October. Surely if fit to play, and what else can we assume based on his travel plans with England, he shoudl be getting game time?

Bad for us, bad for Manu and bad for England.

Manu is only there so he can remain (connected with the squad) not in a playing way.

Guess he will train with everyone when he can so he remains in the fold.

Basically he is viewed as a huge key player for England and with the World Cup coming up the more time spent with the England squad the eaisier it will be when he can play for them.

It's a sign that people have more money than sense. What's the point shipping him all over the UK. That will not help him get fitter faster. A day travelling is a day he's not working with the physio.

Ah ok.

Salvi had agreed a deal and we removed it, or we had one on the table that we removed? Bad form by us if the deal was agreed then removed.

Shame to lose both. Scully was deserving of a significant payrise that I doubt we could afford and stay in cap.

Where have the rumours come from Welly. The Scully one is unsubstantiated on the offy.

Salvi may have agreed a deal in principle and not signed off on it. Tigers felt they couldn't wait indefinitely with the number of quality and affordable sevens on the market low.

I know a recent graduate who does work for an agent.

And agents like to talk to each other, (no surprise)

I will say I posted a hint on the blues thread before the offy thread.

Salvi had rejected the French clubs offer To accept tigers deal but then tigers then withdraw. Not sure how his agent could have let that happen.

I hope it's not Cohen trying to be clever. Salvi and O'Connor working as part of the squad would be ace. Certainly against the likes of Quins the idea of two open sides giving us the breakdown platform to dominate their tight five is appealing.

We certainly don't want to be looking at starting Thacker or Owen in a big game. They aren't quite there yet. Williams and the other lock we are allegedly looking at can both play 6 as can Slater. We need two senior options at each back row position. Then the academy can fill in.

Does Salvi share an agent with Billy Twelvetrees, who verbally agreed a contract but then signed for Glaws.

Was not aware of such an award, but well deserved.

Ayerza will probably win a lot of those awards. He's a top quality player. He's been immense for us.

I'm not certain why England are doing this. Not sure there's much point having a couple of the injured lads hanging around and watching training. Perhaps the abject failure of our second row on Sunday is prompting questions in Lancaster's mind but he didn't cap Ed when he was the best lock in the league last season and there's little option to cap him before the summer given he's not due back before April.

Is it not simple? Being in camp isn't just about being running around on a training pitch. They will be learning the processes England use whilst in camp which means when there fit and playing well they can slot straight in.

But it takes them out of their rehab set up and away from the medical team that has been overseeing their recovery. It requires a good degree of travelling (which isn't fun and can increase swelling and cramps). It's great they get to see some of the drills and processes but there's a difference between watching and doing half pace drills and to training full on. If they were leadership figures I think it might be different but Manu is 22 and quiet whilst Ed is uncapped.
