Academy step up pre-season work

Figure image
England Under-18 internationals Joe Cobden and Jimmy Stevens scored tries for Leicester Tigers Academy in a 26-12 defeat by Brive during their pre-season training camp in France.

A Brive side including older academy players and a couple with first-team experience presented a formidable physical obstacle for a Tigers side made up mostly of the under-18 squad, but it was still a competitive match and an excellent experience for the players.

Tigers Academy have been using the Club Correze centre near Meymac this week and have another match scheduled against Clermont Auvergne next Monday before their return home.
