Let's raise the roof - Murphy

Geordan Murphy aims to give ASM Clermont Auvergne a Welford Road welcome when Tigers host the French side for the return Heineken Cup clash on Saturday.

Tigers were given a hostile reception by a partisan 18,000-crowd at Clermont’s Stade Marcel Michelin on Sunday.

The fans created an electric atmosphere which helped Clermont to a 30-12 victory and extended their winning run at home to 35 games.

Tigers welcome Clermont and their star-studded squad to Leicester this Saturday in the second of back-to-back fixtures.

And Murphy says a bouncing Welford Road will help the Tigers quest for vital points in Pool 4.

“I would love to give them a real Welford Road welcome,” says Tigers captain Murphy. “They had a very partisan crowd and I would love for them to be on the receiving end of something like that at Welford Road.

“Welford Road is a place where we love to play. We will hopefully get a full house there to give them a vociferous Leicester welcome.”
