Let's turn up the heat at home, says Blaze

Richard Blaze wants players and supporters to come together to create a Welford Road cauldron when Bath Rugby visit on Sunday.

Tigers coach Blaze says there is nowhere like Welford Road on Tigers v Bath occasions and says a hostile home atmosphere will test the character of the visitors.
“It’s about what we do,” said Blaze. “Let’s get the crowd on their feet, let’s get them behind us because there’s no atmosphere like Welford Road for a Leicester v Bath game.
“When you’re hitting fire with fire and it’s getting a bit tasty, that’s when you get Welford Road on its feet, and then they are going to be asking questions of their own character. Have they got the minerals?
"Let’s put them under pressure. Let’s see if they can execute in the cauldron that is Welford Road. The crowd getting behind us is huge but it’s us giving them something in the first 10, 15 minutes to get behind,” Blaze told BBC Radio Leicester’s Rugby Show.
