We ask our chosen trio (plus one) for their thoughts on the year so far, their sporting highlights, what they want to see in their Christmas stocking and on the Christmas table, how one Tigers legend inspired Andy Murray to an historic Grand Slam title, and what could be in store for us all in 2013.
The match programme for Tigers versus Benetton Treviso (kick-off 3pm Sunday) contains all the news from Welford Road, including previews of two huge games to come – against Gloucester and four-time European champions Toulouse – and the views of Richard Cockerill, Peter Tom, Peter Wheeler and club president Mike Harrison.
Academy manager Neil McCarthy previews the opening fixtures in the new National Academies League and we spotlight visitors Benetton Treviso and all the fixtures and standings elsewhere in the Heineken Cup.
Read George Chuter’s Inside Line pages as he (sort of) pays tribute to a Tigers legend, and enjoy some Christmas fun and jokes in Fanzone, not forgetting all the news and activities from the Junior Tigers Club pages.
