The Tigers Maul and photo booth, with activities including the Speed Pass Challenge and other games will be in attendance in the build-up to the game and Lichfield are hosting a tag tournament for under-7s and under-8s, and age-grade games for young players. If your team would like to take part, please contact Lichfield RUFC for more details.

After Aviva 'A' League wins over Wasps, Newcastle and Sale, Tigers suffered a first defeat of the season away to Northampton Wanderers at Christmas, but are looking for a strong finish to the campaign.

The Tigers Development XV sits in second place in the Northern Conference of the 'A' league competition, based on a squad which features a mix of experienced players gaining valuable gametime and young prospects from the academy making progress in senior rugby.

First-team players Fraser Balmain, Will Evans, Michele Rizzo, Jack Roberts and Harry Thacker have all lined up in 'A' League rugby this season alongside up-and-coming scrum-halves Ben White and Harry Simmons, forwards Joe Maksymiw and Sam Lewis, and backs Sam Yawayawa and Tom Hardwick. George Worth, who has established himself in senior rugby at Tigers and on loan in the Championship with Nottingham in 2016/17, is the team's top scorer with 24 points after four rounds.
