Tigers World Cup Chit-Chat: Ford & Hare

It would be hard to find two men who understand rugby better than Mike Ford and Dusty Hare.

Having coached and played to the highest-level of the game for a number of years, the pair are better placed than most to share their views on the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

So, why not sit them down and put a microphone in their hands to hear what they think following the opening fixtures of the tournament?

In a LeicesterTigers.com exclusive, Ford and Hare will share their thoughts each week on the major moments from Japan and who they believe have been the standout performers and nations.

And, most importantly for Tigers supporters, the club's attack coach and scout will break down the individual performances from Leicester players taking part in the 2019 tournament - including the impact of their involvement ahead of their return to the East Midlands to link up with the club for the 2019/20 campaign.

In the first edition, Ford and Hare discuss how much they have enjoyed seeing Japanese crowds embrace the world's best players during the opening weeks, the slippery and humid conditions, controversy surrounding match officials and disciplinary decisions, as well as why they believe England can win the Cup and who their biggest threats are.

We also hear what they think of the performances from the Tigers players involved with the England and Tonga squads so far, as well as incoming Leicester lock Tomas Lavanini for Argentina.
