Leicester Tigers Academy return to Welford Road on Sunday for a match against English Colleges (2.30pm kick-off).

Tigers, who beat England Under-18s 27-15 at Welford Road last Sunday afternoon, will be hoping to attract another big crowd for a second successive weekend.

Last season’s match against the Colleges representative side featured 14 tries, and another entertaining match is in prospect.

Tigers Academy manager Neil McCarthy said: “This is an interesting phase of the season with some fixtures against sides we do not see very often. That’s an important part of the development of players in the Academy because that is when you find out more about them and see how adaptable they are to different circumstances.”

Entry to Sunday’s game is free to all supporters. The Holland & Barrett Stand will be open.
