Rugby coverage not good enough
As a Tigers Fan for more than 40 years, I've always been disappointed at the poor coverage of Tigers' match reports – especially on BBC TV.
I suspect that other clubs' fans are just as fed-up with the sparse detail too.
On Saturdays, Football Focus dominates before the soccer games, then we have Final Score, where so-called pundits waffle away as matches are still being played and where each goal in the final minutes is greeted with even more from the windbags.
Rolling scores are ever before us.

Yet, where, oh where, are progress reports of rugby union matches? Nowhere – that's where!
As far as BBC sports bosses are concerned, Tigers might be on another planet – except, perhaps during certain cup competitions!
Will any rugby fan, regardless of club loyalty, join me in demanding that rugby union be given equal coverage with football, and, also, similar coverage to that of soccer's "Match of the Day" and its variations?
Sorry, I forgot – again! I'm just a licence payer who has to "like it or lump it" But why should we rugby fans be forced to "lump it?"

I refer to the various correspondence on the subject that there is no Park and Ride service to the Leicester Royal Infirmary.
With the Park and Ride buses that go from Enderby to Birstall, surely it would be quite simple to re-route this service down Narborough Road and then along Upperton Road and Walnut Street (and of course simlarly for the Birstall to Enderby route).
With a stop at a strategic point in Walnut Street, this would not only serve Leicester Royal Infirmary but also Tigers and Leicester City on match days.
Also, they would be served by two Park and Ride locations, at opposite ends of the city, by what is effectively one bus service.
I would not think that there would be any additional cost, or if there is it would be minimal.

Whatever has happened to Castle Park Gardens? It's a mess!
For the past few years, it has been looking better and better, but now there are high weeds in the flower beds and mud all along the footways.
I don't know what the Parks and Gardens Department is spending money on, but it certainly doesn't appear to be Castle Park Gardens!
