Polota-Nau on derby edition of Rugby Tonight

Leicester Tigers hooker Tatafu Polota-Nau makes a guest appearance on a special edition of Rugby Tonight on Tour this Wednesday (November 27).

The 90-cap Australia international joined supporters and Northampton Saints second-rower David Ribbans at Rugby Lions Football Club on Monday evening to film the show, which will be broadcast on BT Sport 1 at 10.15pm this evening.

The duo – joined by former Leicester players Ben Kay and Austin Healey – discussed Tigers’ European Challenge Cup win away to Cardiff, as well as a look ahead to Saturday’s Gallagher Premiership clash at Franklin’s Gardens.

Polota-Nau picks out the attributes of his Tigers team-mates past and present to build ‘the ultimate rugby player’, while club historian Stuart Farmer talks through the history of the East Midlands derby, first played in 1888.
