Teams from the University of Lincoln and the Royal Anglian Regiment produced the highest-scoring Ultimate Big Boot of the season despite heavy rain at Welford Road on Friday evening.
The Ultimate Big Boot, sponsored by De Montfort University, tests the catching skills of participants on the Welford Road pitch as part of the half-time entertainment at the home of the Leicester Tigers.
Students from the University of Lincoln made six successful catches from their 10 attempts, with soldiers from the Royal Anglian – at the game as part of Uniformed Service s Day and the Remembrance commemorations – followed up with five.
They were both just short of the season’s best mark of seven, set by staff from the Tigers Group Sales team during the European match against the Scarlets, but scored the best aggregate for the competition on a night of heavy rain.
The Ultimate Big Boot is available for group bookings and all teams receive Big Boot T-shirts as a souvenir. All participants must be aged 14 or over. For more information, contact the Tigers group sales team by phoning 0116 2171 216.
