Last chance to see A League at Welford Rd

Figure image
Tigers’ final home game of their 2007/08 Guinness A League campaign takes place at Welford Road this evening, with Sale Jets the visitors for a 7pm kick-off.

The match is likely to be your last opportunity to watch development team rugby at Welford Road this season as Tigers cannot qualify for the A League Final, with the game featuring a number of players likely to make a mark in club colours over the coming seasons.

Ben Herring captains the side from the openside flank, with Luke Abraham packing down at No8 and Chris Mundy named at blindside.

Alex Moreno, Mefin Davies and Dave Young make up a strong front row, while fellow first-teamers Ben Youngs, Paul Burke and Ian Humphreys feature in the backline.

The rest of the side points to a promising future for the club, with a total of six other academy players joining Mundy in the starting XV.

The bench is also packed with young talent, including prop forward Adam Parkins, who is now eligible for his first taste of senior rugby having celebrated his 18th birthday last month.
