"Keep them coming", says Corry

Leicester Tigers face a massive few weeks of fixtures in league and cup - and captain Martin Corry hopes it stays that way up to the end of May.

Corry lifted his first silverware as Tigers captain following the win over the Ospreys in the final of the EDF Energy Cup at Twickenham last Sunday, and he will lead the team for the Heineken Cup semi-final against Llanelli Scarlets on Saturday before two crucial matches in the Guinness Premiership.

"It is a tough end to the season," Corry said. "But we have got to make sure we make it as tough as we possibly can for ourselves by winning every game."

Corry and his colleagues had a tough day in the sunshine of Twickenham last Sunday and faced just a six-day turnaround before the Heineken Cup date with the Scarlets at the Walkers Stadium.

"This is all to do with how the coaches manage the squad and so far this season they have been exceptional," he said. "They took some stick at the start of the season about rotating players and, looking back now, as a strategy I think it took a lot of bottle to do that and a lot of bottle to stick with it. Full credit to them.

"It is great for the squad where 35 to 40 players have been given the opportunity to play in the first team this season and everybody is desperate to play in the big games.

"Now we have got to make sure that, after all our efforts and the work we have done throughout the season, we have something to really shout about at the end of it."
