International rugby returns to Welford Road on Sunday when Leicester Tigers Academy host England Under-18s. Kick-off is at 2pm and entry is free to supporters.

Tigers Academy manager Neil McCarthy said: “We’ve had a very good record against representative teams over the last few years. We’ve had good wins which is a real feather in the cap for the club.

“But just as important is the opportunity for the squad to challenge themselves in a really competitive environment.

“The England games are one of the highlights of the season for the players, and we know that the England guys get a lot out of these fixtures too as they approach their own international season.

“All the guys love to have the opportunity to run out at Welford Road, especially if we can get a big crowd in on the day, and that provides a big motivation for young players.”

All supporters will be accommodated in the Holland & Barrett Stand on Sunday.
