Leicester Tigers wing Harry Potter says he is excited about a Gallagher Premiership semi-final on home turf this weekend.

Northampton Saints are the visitors to Mattioli Woods Welford Road, with a prize of progress to the Final at Twickenham for the winners.

“Being in the knockout stages is where we want to be playing,” said Potter.

“But now we’re there, no one is satisfied with where we are at the moment.

“I am looking forward to it. Certainly there will be some added excitement."

Potter joined Tigers during the postponed 2019/20 campaign, playing his first season-and-a-half for Leicester in front of empty stadiums.

Speaking about the experience of playing with fans in the stands this season, he admitted it was a "special" experience.

“Playing against Exeter at home in Round 1 with 20,000 fans in was my first experience of that and it was awesome. I loved it," Potter said.

“It’s been pretty close to 20,000 all year and it’s exciting to think of it being packed to the rafters. It is special to be playing in front of the biggest crowd in Premiership rugby and it is such a passionate crowd.”
