Leicester Tigers have arranged an Irish double for the weekend of the Heineken Cup quarter-final.

Tigers face Leinster in Dublin on Saturday, April 9 in the showpiece European fixture, and on the previous evening the Tigers Academy have arranged a fixture against Munster Academy to be played at Naas Rugby Club (7.30pm).

“It’s a big weekend for the club with the Heineken Cup quarter-final and now the Academy players have an opportunity to share in the experience,” said Tigers Academy manager Neil McCarthy.

“We’re looking forward to going over there, playing somewhere new against opposition from out of our usual programme.

"It would be great if the supporters travelling early for the Heineken Cup could come and support us on the Friday evening.”

Naas are putting on a full rugby evening with their club’s under-13 and under-15 games against Dubai Hurricanes from 6.30pm before the Academy fixture.
