Close contest in The Ultimate Big Boot

Two teams of young rugby players tested their skills in front of a matchday crowd at Welford Road on Saturday when they faced The Ultimate Big Boot as part of the half-time entertainment at Leicester Tigers.

Sponsored by De Montfort University, the Ultimate Big Boot challenges teams to catch rugby balls fired high into the sky with a jackpot prize for a cleansweep of 10 catches.

As Tigers recorded a 59-7 win over Calvisano in the European Challenge Cup, young players from Ashbourne and Loughborough rugby clubs pitted their skills against each other.

Ashbourne RFC came out on top, beating the two catches they scored on a previous visit to win 3-2 this time.

The Ultimate Big Boot is available for group bookings and all competitors receive a Big Boot T-shirt as a souvenir. All participants must be aged 14 or over. For more information on how to get involved, phone the group sales team on 0116 2171 216.
