Bonus-point win over the Ospreys in the opening game of this season's LV= Cup

Figure image
A squad including 11 players who have come through the Tigers Academy scored four tries in a 39-16 victory at Welford Road in the LV=Cup. Harry Thacker following in his dad Troy's footsteps as a Leicester Tigers hooker played his debut at Welford Road and was also awarded man of the match. The rescheduled post-match firework display also took place after the final whistle, we hope you were able to see it!

The JTC VIP Area on Friday night had members busily colouring in cartoon Welford and taking part in Remembrance Day table activities. We were also lucky enough to have Ryan Bower & Graham Kitchener join us in the JTC VIP area where they challenged many of our JTC members to a game of table tennis!

We ran a Halloween SPLAT mascot completion running up to the game on Friday, where Jacob Mills was the lucky winner. Seth was pulled out the mascot ballet in JTC on Friday and they both lead out the team with Boris Stankovich as team captain. We had some great tries from our Tiger cub winners Samuel, Harry, Leo, Billy and Alfie. Click here to look at JTC photos from the Tigers v. Ospreys match.

Our next match is Saturday, November 23, kick off 15:00, when Tigers welcome London Irish to Welford Road. The JTC VIP Area will be open from 13:00-14:45 and will be full off activities.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
