Members' evening is another success

Figure image
Tigers trio Geordan Murphy, Harry Ellis and James Hamilton kicked off the build-up to the Heineken Cup season at a club members' night this week. The event was the third of this year's schedule, with 'meet the new guys' next on the agenda.

Murphy is a two-time winner of Europe's top club prize, while Ellis had just celebrated his 20th birthday when he appeared in the win over Munster in 2002 and Hamilton got his first taste of the competition last term.

"The final win in Paris was obviously a very special occasion," said Murphy when asked about his memories of Heineken Cup campaigns, "and the following year was very special for me personally because it was against Munster."

Ellis says he looks forward to playing against new rivals, which this season means French side Bourgoin, and Hamilton hopes to build on the experience he gained last season.

All three revealed their thoughts on the opening game against Munster on October 22, and also talked about training at Tigers, their Heineken Cup "dream team" and their ambitions for the future.
