Big Boot fires up for a new season

Figure image
Junior players from South Leicester RFC set the benchmark to beat for the rest of the season in The Ultimate Big Boot at Welford Road on Saturday.

The Ultimate Big Boot, sponsored by De Montfort University, fires balls high into the Welford Road sky for teams to attempt to catch and stake a claim to a jackpot prize which started the season at £2,000 for a cleansweep of 10 catches.
Last season we saw our best-ever total with Devon visitors Cullompton RFC making eight catches to finish the season one ahead of Loughborough RFC.
On Saturday, the team from South Leicester made five catches on the afternoon of Tigers’ first home game of the campaign.
Their total beat the attempts by Peter Davies and friends (4) and the group from Life Associates (3) but secures top spot in the early-season leaderboard.
The Ultimate Big Boot is available to Tigers group bookings on matchday throughout the season. Participants must be aged 14 or over. All participants receive a Big Boot T-shirt as a souvenir. For more information, phone the Tigers Group Days team on 0116 2171 216.
