Preview | Tigers v Falcons

Figure image

An historic occasion awaits Mattioli Woods Welford Road this Sunday as Leicester Tigers host a mens and womens double-header on their home patch for the very first time.

Dan McKellar’s Tigers side are hunting a third Gallagher Premiership win in a row after earning their first bonus-point of the year against Gloucester.

Newcastle Falcons have been battling in every game this season, and have been unfortunate to not record a win so far this season having been in tight contests against Sale and Exeter in their last couple of outings.
