Flood ready for a Christmas cracker

It is third versus fourth in the Aviva Premiership on Saturday (5pm) when Leicester Tigers welcome Gloucester Rugby to Welford Road and Toby Flood is expecting a Christmas cracker.

Flood expects Gloucester to be in the shake-up for a semi-final spot at the end of the season and says that could give the game added importance.

“Gloucester are really sniffing around the top four this year,” said Flood, who returned from injury to kick 11 points in Tigers’ win at London Irish that took them third in the Aviva Premiership. “They will be around there come the end of the season so it’s important for us to not only win the game but also to make sure they don’t get anything from it.

“Being at home over the Christmas period and it being a full house will be fantastic for us.

“We did well to get five points against a good Irish side and we have got two more games during the Christmas period. If we can come out of those in a healthy position then it makes a big difference.”
