Ed Slater has enjoyed a landmark month in his rugby career, leading out Tigers in four successive league wins and in a European quarter-final as well as training with the England squad at the Six Nations. He’s also been caught in the media glare, coping with the spotlight in the immediate aftermath of matches as the team captain. In this week’s match programme we look back on how he’s coped with it all.
Also in Saturday’s 100-page programme, there is a Tigers On Tour special featuring some of your photos from this season’s European trips, we hear from Blaine Scully in the 140-character interview and there’s Academy news, Fan Zone, the Aviva Premiership update, news from around Welford Road and all the match stats from the season so far.
And, of course, George Chuter casts his eye over the major news stories of the week in his exclusive Inside Line pages.
The Tigers programme is on sale around the stadium on matchday, price £3.
