Tickets for the Twickenham clash with London Wasps on May 31 went on sale to season ticket holders today, with Chris at the front of a lengthy line.
“I knew I had to get up early and I couldn’t sleep so I thought I might as well come down to the car park,” said Chris, who was in situ outside the ground since 1.15am. “I knew then that at least I was already down here.
“I sat in the car park and saw three foxes. I had my duvet with me and a cup of coffee and I slept in the car.”
Chris, who has been a season ticket holder for 18 years and plans all her holidays around Tigers, will be hoping for a repeat of last year’s Premiership success, having been at Twickenham for the 44-16 win over Gloucester.
