Hundreds of shoppers joined Leicester Tigers and the Rugby Football Union for a series of rugby-related activities in Leicester city centre this weekend.

The RFU ran its Rugby in the City event in Humberstone Gate on Saturday, with live big-screen coverage of the World Cup semi-final between France and Wales and a series of rugby-based activities for all the family.

The Tigers roadshow vehicle, known as The Maul, was also there giving people the chance to have a go at the Speed Pass Challenge while hundreds of young fans signed up to the Junior Tigers Club.

Local clubs from around Leicester, Aylestonians, Aylestone St James, Aylestone Athletic, Belgrave and Stoneygate, were also present to give demonstrations of adult and junior rugby and to recruit prospective new members.

Tigers and Crusha, the sponsors of the Junior Tigers Club, welcomed hundreds more people to a milkshake bar in the centre of Highcross on Saturday and Sunday.

Tigers and Crusha were giving away free milkshakes, visitors created their own flavours with the help of Crusha mixologists while Crusha created a special layered Tigers milkshake.

Every child received a free JTC goodie bag and got to meet Welford, the new Tigers mascot.

If you are aged 16 and under, JTC is the place to celebrate your support of Leicester Tigers. More than 3,000 young fans have already signed up and you can join them now for free by clicking here

JTC members can receive a free milkshake from the Crusha milkshake bar at the JTC VIP area in Final Whistle at every Tigers home game. Join us at Welford Road this Friday evening for the LV= Cup clash with Gloucester Rugby (7.45pm kick-off). Tickets are available by clicking here

Members will receive a fortnightly ezine with games, tips and information, the chance to celebrate with Tigers players at the JTC Christmas party and their very own JTC pages on the Tigers website.
