The Leicester Tigers Academy face Bath Rugby in their second fixture of the revised Under-18 Premiership Rugby season on Saturday, May 8 at Newlands Park Sports & Social Venue.

Tigers were defeated by Gloucester in their opening fixture of the four-round competition, the first competitive match for The Cubs in more than 12 months, last weekend at Loughborough University.

Fixtures remain behind-closed-doors for supporters in line with Public Health England COVID-19 protocols.

Speaking ahead of the away game, Tigers Academy Manager David Wilks said: "It was great for us to see the players back on the pitch last weekend and I was very pleased with their work rate and the fitness levels on show, despite not having played a game for a long time."

"We need to learn those lessons from last weekend's defeat, especially an improvement in converting those opportunities we create through pressure."
