Market Harborough set Big Boot best mark

Figure image
There are new leaders in The Ultimate Big Boot at Welford Road with the young players from Market Harborough setting the best mark of the season at half-time in Saturday's match between Leicester Tigers and Bristol Rugby.

Newark RFC Under-14s and Uttoxeter RFC had topped the leaderboard with six successful catches from their 10 attempts until Harborough went one better.

Sponsored by De Montfort University, The Ultimate Big Boot challenges teams to catch rugby balls fired high into the Welford Road sky and stake a claim to a jackpot prize which started the season at £2,000 for a cleansweep of 10 catches, while also providing an unforgettable opportunity for supporters to experience matchday in front of a big crowd at Welford Road.

Harborough were taking part in a head-to-head contest with visiting club Cartagena from Spain who managed four catches.

There are just three more opportunities this season for any of our matchday groups to go better than Harborough and set a new total at the top of the leaderboard in the Ultimate Big Boot, starting with the match against Exeter Chiefs on Friday, March 3 (7.45pm kick-off).

The Ultimate Big Boot is available to Tigers group bookings on matchday throughout the season. Participants must be aged 14 or over. All participants receive a Big Boot T-shirt as a souvenir. For more information, phone the Tigers Group Days team on 0116 2171 216.
