Tom Nutley joins the Leicester Lions Pride

We are delighted to announce the signing of Tom Nutley from Cambridge for the coming season. Tom was an ever present player for Cambridge last season and his physical presence as a strong ball carrying backrow will further strengthen the pack.

Ethan Godefroy becomes a "Lion"

Ethan Godefroy becomes the 2nd signing for coach Key. Ethan is a physical backrower who signs from near by club, Market Harborougth. Key is making a conscience effort to size up the pack for the new season campaign.

Ed Sumpter becomes the 3rd New Signing

A big athletic ball carrier is one of the attributes Ed brings to the side for season 2018/19. Ed also from neigh-borough club, Market Harborough, will join both Nutley & Godefroy in strengthening the pack.

Tom will do you proud. 
Not quite as good as his twin, Ben.
He was a key player for us, until injury and then I believe he spent some time in Australia so has not played for Cambridge since Christmas.

Great news for the club that the majority of last years squad have all signed for this year. We did not fulfil our potential last season and all the players are committed to putting that right this season! from Leicester Lions Twitter.

A fair few frustrated and unhappy forwards who will be in the 2s - unless you're paying them all even if they're not in the 1st team. It's a difficult balancing act as I know from many years' experience.

As a mere supporter its great to see a bit more beef at Tigers. Injuries are a fact of life in N2 and you need a good sized squad. Players have got to be prepared to play 2ndXV rugby and wait their chance.
I don`t think anybody joins Tigers for the money. It`s a proper rugby club.
Well done to those in charge. Cant wait for the season to start.

Every club is different FC as you know ! 

The current lads are delighted with the new additions in the squad. Pre season is a clean slate for us and every shirt is up for grabs, all the lads are looking forward to the challenge. 

You can do it 2 ways, neither is right or wrong. 
1. Be a club and get strength in depth with competition for places. 
2. Bring in DR players which can upset the apple cart far more in our view. 

Either way is fine, but the lads reactions and the fact that we have NOT lost a single playing member from either squad this year should suggest a happy camp and we are doing things right....... how many clubs up and down NAT2 can boast not to lose a single player ?????? not many me thinks !!!!

No frustrations here only anticipation of the coming Pre season to own your shirt !!!

If you need help balancing you can come and see our model if you like ...... however do not ask me to show you any balancing at 6pm on a Saturday within the season LOL

Well your 2nd XV were top of the league last year so your lads obviously don't mind playing there which is terrific.
As usual Sandal have lost a few to Huddersfield so if you want to DR a few to us feel free. As If.
Anyway have a great season TD I will try to get up to Dore Moor sometime but will PM you if I can

Tulip may just have worked this out. Last season, Tigers 2nd XV did indeed come top of the YRFU Championship South - playing the 2nd XVs of the likes of Wath (L8), Thornensians (L8) Barnsley (L8) and Sheffield Medics (L9). These are all very respectable clubs, but their 2nd XVs are hardly the sort of opposition to allow aspiring National League players to prove their worth. Next season, Tigers 2nd XV will be in the YRFU Merit Premiership and up against local rivals Sheffield who topped last season's Premiership table up to Christmas, ahead of Harrogate and Wharfedale, although Wharfedale went on to win the post Christmas Conference A. So maybe Tigers are just in the business of strengthening their 2nd XV for the tests that lie ahead...... On a more serious note, if Tigers are intent on taking 2nd XV rugby seriously and putting out a 2nd XV commensurate with their National League status, this is to be welcomed as the weakness of 2nd XV competitive rugby in Yorkshire and the north east is a regular complaint particularly when compared to the strength of the equivalent structure in the North West.
Just call me "Sir".
