Talking Tigers - Episode 5: CEO Simon Cohen

In the fifth episode of Talking Tigers, the official Leicester Tigers Podcast, hosts Greg Bateman and Sam 'Bondi' Williamson sit down with Leicester Tigers CEO Simon Cohen.

In an informative and intriguing interview, Cohen shares his journey to the top job at Tigers with Bateman and Bondi and also answers questions on topics including the salary cap and recent news stories surrounding the hot topic in Premiership Rugby, player welfare and finances of both the Leicester club and rugby union across the world.

The boys also grill the coach on recent seasons and the disappointing performances on the pitch from Tigers, as well as the high turnover of head coaches during that period and the need for a "re-build" (and what that entails) under Geordan Murphy.

Cohen also responds to criticism that Tigers focuses more on its relationship with sponsors rather than season ticket holders and explains why it's certainly not the case, plus answers questions from supporters posted on social media as well as much, much more in this wide-ranging, engaging chat.
