This weekend was a disappointing one for Leicester Tigers players on International duty.

Ollie Chessum, Dan Cole and Freddie Steward all started in England's defeat by Fiji.  

The Flying Fijians ran out 22-30 winners at Twickenham, recording a first ever victory over England in the process, as both teams played their final match prior to the 2023 Rugby World Cup. 

Ollie Chessum made his first start in nearly six months, following a serious knee injury in the 2023 Six Nations, playing nearly 70 minutes after having come off the bench last weekend in Dublin. 

Cole and Steward also started the game, with Cole also playing nearly 70 minutes whilst Steward was replaced after 53 minutes.
