A hard battle at Welford Road

Figure image
Leicester Tigers lost 22-19 to Ulster Rugby at Welford Road on Saturday night. It was Tigers' first Heineken Cup defeat at Welford Road since 2006. Anthony Allen returned to the starting line-up for the first time since October after his injury. Both teams ran on to the pitch to a fantastic noise from the 24,000 supporters!

The JTC VIP area was full off members enjoying all the competitions running on the day. We had a JTC member take home 112 sweets after guessing how many were in the bag, another wining a signed shirt from the JTC ballot and we had some great entries to the JTC colouring competition where many Tigers goodies were won.

We were lucky enough to have Tigers Stars Dan Bowden and Sam Harrison head down to the JTC VIP area. We found out Dan Bowden is now the proud dad of a new little boy! Maybe he might be playing for Leicester one day! The five lucky Tiger Cubs were pulled out of the JTC ballot by Sam Harrison: Charlie, George, Sam, Seb and Lucy, they scored some great Try’s over the line!

See you soon!!!
