Martin Castrogiovanni and Marcos Ayerza are two of the top young props in rugby and they are looking forward to three more years with Leicester Tigers after agreeing new contracts this week. Find out what they think about the club – and the supporters – in the Tigers matchday programme today.

The front-row internationals also talk about the highlights in their first year at Welford Road, including the win in Munster and Castro’s first try for the club – “The one with the photo with my arm in the air!” he says.

Ayerza describes how he overcame nerves to settle into full-time training at the home of one of Europe’s biggest clubs and end his first season in front of 82,000 people at Twickenham.

Tigers flanker Ben Herring also talks about the lure of the northern hemisphere and the differences between playing No7 in New Zealand and in Europe.
