England's biggest names do battle

Figure image
Celebrate St George's Day this week in the company of some of English rugby's biggest names as Leicester Tigers host Harlequins on Saturday (3pm).

In the penultimate round of Guinness Premiership action, league leaders Tigers face a Quins team who are looking for the points to secure a Heineken Cup place for next season.

Tigers included 10 senior England internationals and three England Saxons caps in the squad that won at Newcastle Falcons last Sunday – including Toby Flood, Lewis Moody, Tom Croft, Ben Youngs and Dan Cole – while Quins can count on the services of England men Danny Care, Nick Easter, Ugo Monye, David Strettle and Mike Brown.

Saturday is LOROS day at Welford Road, with representatives of the county hospice raising awareness of their work around the stadium. See them in The Final Whistle and support the valuable work of LOROS by purchasing a cuddly toy for £1.

We will also be joined by representatives of Special Olympics Leicester before kick-off in the big game.

The Prima Tiger Cup Final between the under-10s teams from Market Harborough and Silhillians provides the opening action on a big day for rugby. Kick-off is at 1pm.

Supporters have a chance to win a brand new BMW in a Spot The Ball competition run in conjunction with the Ben Kay Testimonial Year. Check it out on the approach to the Caterpillar Stand.

And your matchday programme could win you £100 of vouchers from NEXT, official clothing sponsors of Leicester Tigers.

Final Whistle is open from 1pm for food and refreshments.

To improve service of refreshments, another speed bar is being set up at the end of the Santander Alliance & Leicester Stand and speed lanes are being used in the ABC Bar and parts of Final Whistle.

Match tickets are still available from the Tigers ticket office. Phone the ticket hotline on 0844 856 1880, book online or call in at Welford Road.

The ticket office is open until 5pm on Friday and from 9am on matchday.
