Together they have amassed more than 330 appearances for Leicester Tigers, share 140 Test caps and have scored almost 200 points for the club.
They share heritage from all over the world, including Australia, Tonga, New Zealand, Zimbabwe and the United Kingdom.
With a combined age of 275 and their oldest representative at 33 years of age and youngest at 20, they’ve seen plenty in their time on earth and picked up a wealth of knowledge from their many, many travels around the world.
However, with just over a week until they head in to battle, they still remain the odds on favourites to finish last at the Tigers Pub Quiz!
Who are they?
The Tigers Team of course!
In spite of their impressive (rugby) resumes, it’s unknown how much they will know when any other topic is on the table and their admirable ability to run, kick, pass, scrum, tackle and score points isn’t going to help them on Tuesday, February 19 when the much-loved Tigers Pub Quiz makes its return to Welford Road.
Tigers head coach Geordan Murphy has named his team, to be skippered by the People’s Captain Greg Bateman and includes:
- Greg Bateman (c)
- Tatafu Polota-Nau
- Ross McMillan
- David Feao
- Sam Lewis
- Mike Williams
- Brendon O'Connor (vc)
- Matt Toomua
- Kyle Eastmond
- Jordan Olowofela

Following the announcement, Pub Quiz captain Greg Bateman spoke exclusively to LeicesterTigers.com ahead of the highly anticipated return of the Tigers Event.
"It's up there with the biggest honours of my career, without any doubt," said Bateman.
"We've assembled what we think is the most well rounded squad, to cover any and all topics on the night, plus Matt Toomua."
"He's got a bit of star power, but offers nothing else really, so hopefully our competitors are starstruck by his attendance and it throws them off their game.
"I'm confident, in not only me but also my team ... we are in it to win it, second place or lower would be deemed a failure."
