Figure image

Aled Walters sits down with LTTV at the club's Oval Park Training Ground to discuss the changes made to the squad's schedule after the decision to suspend Rounds 3 and 4 of the 2020/21 European season. 

The Tigers Head of Physical Performance share an insight in to the mood in the room when the news came through that the Challenge Cup games had been called off and what a fortnight without fixtures means for the training plan, including the goals of the group ahead of returning to action against Sale Sharks on January 30 at Mattioli Woods Welford Road

Walters also shares an insight in to the extra work being done across the club during the challenging, pandemic-impacted 2020/21 campaign and how Tigers coaches are ensuring each member of the squad - including those yet to feature this season - are being prepared for selection, as well as how they are aiming to keep the momentum going after three successive victories. 

The Tigers coach also tells LTTV why he's proud of the positivity the playing and coaching groups have displayed, despite the uncertainty of each weekend and how they're "moving forward" on and off the field and adapting to whatever the situation may be in this challenging period for the game.

Walters also provides an entertaining, dismissive response to rumours spread by Charlie Clare that he has lost control of his hair after a disappointing profile headshot emerged in the build-up to the current season.
