There is never much to divide the two traditional rivals, with five close encounters in league and cups last season and a Guinness Premiership draw in the early weeks of the current campaign.
Both teams still have an opportunity to reach the semi-finals of the Anglo-Welsh competition now known as the LV= Cup, but only if they can snatch a victory in the head-to-head at Welford Road.
A Friday evening kick-off means you can kick off your weekend in style with a trip to Welford Road, especially if you usually have other commitments on a Saturday afternoon.
Tickets are available now from the Tigers ticket office. Phone the hotline on 0844 856 1880, call in at Welford Road or book online. The ticket office is open 8.30am-5pm every day, with late-night opening until 8pm on Wednesdays.
