Two young Leicester Tigers fans won the chance to lead out the players on to the famous Welford Road pitch at last weekend’s European Champions Cup win over Castres Olympique.
Bailey Payne and Eloise Plummer, who are both members of the Junior Tigers Club, soaked up the pre-match atmosphere pitchside before joining Tigers captain Tom Youngs to lead out the team.
Both fans also received a full Tigers home kit as well as a signed photo on the pitch with Youngs and club mascot Welford.
Just before kick-off, Bailey said: “This is amazing, I was so excited when I found out I had won the competition to be a mascot and now I’m out here on the pitch.”
