It's all in the matchday programme

In Saturday's matchday programme we hear from Jamie Gibson on how he's settling into life at Leicester Tigers - and how the Pool 5 decider against Ulster was just the kind of occasion he hoped for when he signed in the summer.

“There are not too many occasions bigger than the last pool game in the Heineken Cup, at home to a top club like Ulster with everything to play for,” says back-rower Gibson.

“Welford Road will be rocking. It is the sort of game you want to be involved in.

“I remember sitting down with Cockers when I was about to sign. He said to me that you come here and there will be players ahead of you, but that in itself is a challenge.”

Gibson talks about his England experience, his Oxford University studies and the thrill of running out at Welford Road as a Tigers player.

Also in Saturday’s programme, there’s news from around the Heineken Cup, a spotlight on visitors Ulster Rugby, and the views of Peter Tom, Peter Wheeler and Richard Cockerill, plus Academy round-up, Postcard From Treviso in Tigers Fanzone and all the match stats from our season so far.

The Tigers programme is on sale around the stadium, price £3.
