Fight till the end!

At Welford Road on Sunday 20 January, Leicester Tigers won 9-5 against four times Heineken Cup champions Toulouse, to make it through to the quarter finals. The snowy conditions couldn't faze us and we held off the French giants. Tigers will now face an away fixture at Toulon in the quarter final and if we win that game we will meet either Saracens or Ulster in the semi finals.

The JTC area was a shelter from the snow on Sunday with lots of things to do to keep warm. The video games and air hockey table were popular like always, and the Arts & Crafts area was coated in glitter. Andy Symons and Jimmy Stevens were our guests for the day and served up your milkshake needs and answered all of your burning questions.

Dan Cooper was drawn out in the JTC area on Sunday by Andy Symons and Jimmy Stevens. He ran out onto the snow covered Welford Road pitch with the captain Louis Deacon.
