Fans go behind the scenes at Welford Road

Three Leicester Tigers supporters enjoyed a behind-the-scenes experience at Welford Road on Friday thanks to club partners Total Motion.

Isabelle Harvey was joined by friends Mia and Dom on the touchline this morning to watch the matchday squad run through their final preparations ahead of the league clash against Gallagher Premiership table-toppers Exeter on Saturday.

Competition winner Izzie and her guests enjoyed hospitality in an executive box in the Mattioli Woods Stand before heading down to the Breedon Terrace for the team run, being held under the watchful eye of head coach Geordan Murphy and his coaching team.

Izzie said: “It’s been really exciting to see how the other half live!

“We come to watch the games from the terrace, but it’s really nice to see what the view’s like from up there [in the box] and see behind the scenes.

“I’m a big fan and watch Tigers on TV all the time, but not everyone looks how I expected them to up close!”

Dom added: “I’ve been to Welford Road my whole life, but this is really exciting to actually see it all from a different point of view.

“It’s just a lot more intense than other rugby training sessions – they all seem to be taking it really seriously, and it’s good to see.”

Izzie, who took part in a competition run by Leicester Tigers partners Total Motion, also wins three tickets for her and her guests to watch Saturday’s all-important Round 18 match against Exeter at Welford Road.
