LTTV | Tigers enjoy umu feast

Figure image

Leicester Tigers players enjoyed a unique lunch on Tuesday afternoon, in the middle of training sessions at the club's Oval Park Training Ground, specially made by the Samoan and Tongan contingent of the squad.

Logovi'i Mulipola, Manu Tuilagi, Matt Toomua, Fred Tuilagi, Telusa Veainu, Valentino Mapapalangi and Sione Kalamafoni were the men in charge of the near three-hour preparation for what is known as an 'umu' in Samoan culture.

Five pigs, three lambs and a range of unique sides were on offer for the playing squad and coaching staff, which Tigers centre Manu Tuilagi described as "a great way to get everyone working together" when he chatted with LTTV during the cook.
