As we reach the business end of the rugby campaign, we share fantastic news about Leicester Tigers’ global partner clubs Dendermonde RFC and Kuala Lumpur Tigers.

Dendermonde RFC

Dendermonde’s senior side and women’s team mathematically guaranteed their place in the play-offs in their respective leagues.

The mens side sit top of the Belgian Elite League Division 1. The senior side are nine points clear at the top with just one game remaining this season before the play-off fixtures as they chase third consecutive title.   

The ‘Gazelles’ have enjoyed a dominant season with their ‘Gazelles III’ team also adding to the club’s successes crowned as champions earlier this month. 

Leicester Tigers also hosted a week-long rugby camp for Dendermonde’s youth teams earlier this month as the clubs continue to work together to develop youth talent.

Kuala Lumpur Tigers
