The Leicester Tigers Academy will take part in a revised 2021 campaign with four fixtures confirmed during the month of May.

The Leicester youngsters have not played a competitive match since February 2020, when the Tigers Under-18s completed a successful three-peat of the Premiership Rugby Under-18 League title, following the cancellation of their 2020/21 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Cubs will kick-off their month-long mini-season at home to Gloucester on Saturday, May 1 at Loughborough University before travelling away to take on Bath at Cheltenham RFC on Saturday, May 8.

A fortnight later, Tigers will host the Sale Sharks Academy at Loughborough University on Saturday, May 22 and finish their campaign away at Kingston Park against their Newcastle counterparts on Saturday, May 29.

Fixtures will include a mix of Under-18 and Under-17 players from both clubs and, at this stage, remain behind-closed-doors to supporters.
