Fans vote for their image of the season

Leicester Tigers fans have voted this photo of Greg Bateman as their image of the season.

Taken by Malcolm Couzens, the photo captures Bateman making a clearance kick from the edge of his own 22 in the Aviva Premiership clash win over Exeter Chiefs at Welford Road in September.

Tigers fan Eileen Dugmore, of Birmingham, a season ticket holder in the Holland & Barrett Stand, was one of the fans who voted for the photo of Bateman, and she was picked out as the winner of a signed canvas of the image.

Supporters were asked to choose their image of the 2017/18 campaign from a shortlist of eight selected by the club’s Tiger Images photography team of Couzens, James Baylis, Geoff Sellars and Dave Wainwright.

A portrait photo of Dan Cole taken by Baylis was the second most-liked image with Telusa Veainu and Manu Tuilagi celebrating the opening try of the season against Bath Rugby coming third.
