Join Cocker & Co for this month's supporters' evening

Figure image
Find out about the work that goes into getting Leicester Tigers on to the field in the company of Richard Cockerill and the rest of the coaching staff at this month's Tigers Supporters Evening.

Head coach Cockerill and backs coach Matt O’Connor will be joined by kicking coach Paul Burke and head of strength and conditioning Alex Martin for the evening in the Premiership Suite of the Caterpillar Stand on Tuesday, February 16.

Learn how the backroom staff work together in the pre-season period and from match to match, hear how their skills interlink and how a specialist coach works on aspects of the game with individual players and the squad as a whole.

And Alex will reveal all the work that a top-class player puts into gaining the strength and stamina to compete at the top levels of the game.

The January event for supporters featured an insider’s view of work on the front line with George Chuter, Boris Stankovich, Brett Deacon and Joe Duffey.

It’s not all serious, though, at a Supporters Evening, with Brett talking about his tough introduction to senior rugby in the company of Messrs Cockerill and Garforth, Boris revealing the reasons behind his move from youth team hooker to prop, and George giving his views on playing against Tigers in his younger days with Saracens and then having to share a room with ‘the enemy’ on England duty.

Tickets for Supporters Evenings are available from the Tigers ticket office. Price is £19 for season ticket holders and members, and £22 for non-members, including a meal and the chance to meet the players and coaches for photos and autographs.

Book now to guarantee your place. Phone the ticket office on 0844 856 1880 or call in at Welford Road.
