Frank Wheeler finally had the chance to follow his brother Peter on to the Welford Road pitch when he was announced as a TigersLotto winner on Saturday.

At every Leicester Tigers home game, one supporter wins the price of their season ticket in a special TigersLotto matchday draw and on Saturday, as Tigers hosted Pau in the European Challenge Cup, it was Frank’s name that came out of the hat.

“We sit at the front of the Holland & Barrett Stand and I’ve never been on the field here before now – although my brother has done it many, many times!” said Frank as he received his prize from Tigers scrum-half Sam Harrison at half-time in the team's 41-20 victory over their French visitors.

Membership of the TigersLotto costs £52 a year, which puts you in with a chance of winning great daily and weekly prizes, plus the regular MegaDraws as well as the chance to win the cost of your season ticket.
