Two young Leicester Tigers fans won the chance to lead out the players on to the famous Welford Road pitch at last weekend’s Gallagher Premiership match against Gloucester Rugby.
I was really excited and ran around the kitchen. My friends didn’t believe me when I told them, but they probably do now!
Both fans also received a full Tigers kit as well as a signed photo on the pitch with Green and club mascot Welford.
Just before kick-off, Isaac said: “My dad told me two weeks ago, I was really excited and ran around the kitchen. My friends didn’t believe me when I told them, but they probably do now!”
Alex also said: “I only found out about 5 minutes ago and it was quite exciting when they called out my name.”
