More than 1,000 members of the Scout Movement joined a capacity crowd for the fifth annual Scout Day at Welford Road and shared Leicester Tigers' 25-6 victory over Quins.

Scout and Explorer groups from across the region were part of a huge matchday and watched Tigers move back into the top four of the Aviva Premiership with a win.
Adrian Wray, county secretary for Leicestershire Scouts, said: “It is always great to be part of a matchday at the Leicester Tigers – it keeps getting bigger and bigger.
“It was great to have so much interest from supporters and to be able to show what the Scout Movement is about.”
The Scouts had a stall on the plaza in front of the Holland & Barrett Stand to promote Scouting in Leicestershire, there was a climbing wall for fans to take on and music from the Oadby and Wigston Scout Band.
It was the busiest matchday for group visits to Welford Road with more than 5,000 fans attending the game as part of a group booking.
Tigers welcomed under-10s teams from Barkers Butts, Leicester Forest, Nottingham Corsairs, Sandbach, Shipston on Stour, Silhillians, Stamford and Sudbury rugby clubs for the latest round of the Prima Tiger Cup.
Tigers also welcomed players, coaches and parents from 35 under-nines teams, who took part in a round-robin rugby tournament at the University of Leicester’s Stoughton Road Playing Fields.

Wyggeston & Queen Elizabeth College and Leicester Forest RFC hosted a total of 11 groups for Matchday Coaching Clinics, which saw players working on their skills with Tigers coaches before heading to Welford Road for the big match. 
And employees from 80 companies, including Aggregate Industries, Nottingham Building Society and high street retailer next, were part of the big match atmosphere.
