Tigers are chasing a third successive ‘A’ League title after back-to-back successes in the last two seasons and can qualify for this year’s semi-finals with victory over Northern Conference rivals Leeds.
Paul Burke’s side are third in the northern table but can jump into second place and earn an away semi-final against the Southern Conference winners.
“It’s a massively important game for us,” says Burke. “Getting through the group and reaching the semi-finals was our goal when we started off. If we can get to a semi-final then who knows?”
Tigers versus Leeds has been brought forward to a 6.00pm kick-off at Welford Road on Monday, January 16 due to the forecast of another cold night.
Entry to Aviva Premiership Rugby ‘A’ League games at Welford Road is free on production of your season ticket card, or £5 adults, £1 juniors. Purchase tickets at the ticket office on your way to the game.
