It was a busy day for Leicester Tigers staff on Wednesday as they represented the club on appearances around the city.

Scott Clarke, Tigers head of community and global partnerships, was a guest on BBC Radio Leicester’s Rugby Hour.

Mr Clarke joined host Martin Ballard to discuss the latest news from Welford Road and Oval Park, and to talk about the club’s growing international relationships.

He said: “It’s always good to visit our friends at BBC Radio Leicester and to spread the word about the great work we are doing at Leicester Tigers.

“The demand and focus for the game of rugby is growing across the world every year, as is the interest in Tigers.

“We are fortunate to have developed some exciting relationships across Europe, Asia and the United States and we are working hard to maximise those opportunities to grow the game and Tigers’ impact.”

Leena Saller, Tigers’ conference and events sales executive, meanwhile, visited the Leicester studios of Sabras Radio, the Midlands biggest Asian radio station.

Miss Saller was a guest on the Drivetime programme with Raj Baddhan, during which she talked about the conference and events facilities at Welford Road, with an emphasis on Asian celebrations.
