Preview | Tigers vs Chiefs

Figure image

Leicester Tigers close out their 2023/24 Gallagher Premiership season at Mattioli Woods Welford Road tomorrow afternoon with one clear goal: send the clubs departing players and fans off with something to smile about.

Results for Dan McKellar in his first season have not gone to plan, but Tigers will be looking to springboard into preseason with a result and performance against Exeter Chiefs.

Rob Baxter’s side are right in the mix for a top-four spot.
