Midlands rugby clubs Newark and Veseyans faced The Big Boot at the home of the Leicester Tigers on Sunday.
The Ultimate Big Boot, sponsored by De Montfort University, tests the catching skills of participants on the pitch as part of the half-time entertainment at Welford Road stadium.
The group from Newark made five clean catches to win their head-to-head on the day as Veseyans scored three during half-time in the Gallagher Premiership fixture between Tigers and Saracens in front of a 20,000-plus crowd.
The season’s best mark still belongs to a team of staff from Tigers Group Sales who made seven catches during the European match against the Scarlets in October.
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.
