In celebration of Christmas Day, Leicester Tigers stars have recorded special messages for supporters around the world.

With several countries represented across the squad in season 2017/18, including a handful in the coaching staff alone, members of the senior team have sent messages to fans via the club's social media channels and LTTV YouTube channel. 

Beginning with Pacific Islanders Logovil'i Mulipola (Samoa) and Valentino Mapapalangi (Tonga), who sent a message back "home" to those #TigersFamily celebrating in the sunshine in their home nations within the Pacific Isles of Samoa, Tonga and Fiji.

New Zealander Brendon O'Connor and recently arrived Tatafu Polota-Nau of Australia were the next to have their messages broadcast back 'down under' to the Southern Hemisphere.

Ben Youngs was the first to record one for those in the United Kingdom, sending his best wishes to families opening presents mid-morning delivered by Santa.

England internationals Dan Cole and Mat Tait added their own 'unique' message after their scrum-half, recording a video for supporters titled Sent from Tigers Bah Humbug Duo.

Sam Harrison, who noted he was in at the club's Oval Park Training Ground on Christmas Day training hard, was the first to send his Christmas message of the English-afternoon, even noting that he hoped fans hadn't seen their dad have one too many drinks on the silliest of silly season days.

Finally, in a truly festive video directed at all Tigers supporters world-wide, captain Tom Youngs sent his best from the changing rooms for all on Chistmas Day.
