Leicester Tigers welcomed the players, coaches and supporters of six under-10s teams from around the region for Finals Day in the Prima Tiger Cup and Prima Tiger Bowl.

The teams followed in the footsteps of rugby legends at Welford Road on the same day as the Tigers Aviva Premiership match with Exeter Chiefs.

Now in its 20th season, the Prima Tiger Cup is supported by Prima Solutions of Loughborough and is open to under-10s teams from across the country.

This year more than 70 teams played in the regional tournaments in the biggest-ever Prima Tiger Cup and many of them have since been invited to Welford Road to showcase their skills ahead of a first-team game.

Tigers welcomed back teams from Haywards Heath, Nottingham Corsairs, North Walsham and Market Harborough for the Prima Tiger Cup semi-finals, with Nuneaton and Oadby Wyggestonian joining us for the Prima Tiger Bowl Final.

The first semi-final kicked off with Haywards Heath putting in a strong performance against Nottingham Corsairs to secure their place in the final, where they were joined by Market Harborough following their last-four game with North Walsham.

Oadby Wyggestonian and Nuneaton then took to the pitch for the Prima Tiger Bowl Final with Oadby Wyggestonian coming back in the second half to take the Prima Tiger Bowl trophy.

Haywards Heath and Market Harborough then provided an entertaining game in the Prima Tiger Cup Final, with  Haywards Heath producing a solid second half performance to take the trophy.
