Figure image

Ahead of this weekend's fixtures, the team has been named that will take to the court to represent Leicester Tigers Wheelchair Rugby.

The matches are set to take place at Stoke Mandeville Stadium in Aylesbury on Sunday, August 20. 

The second round of the WR5's will see the team play Bournemouth Wheelchair Rugby, Stoke Mandeville Maulers, West Country Hawks and, the fiercest rivalry of all, an East-Midlands derby against Northampton Saints.

Last month's contests saw a dramatic, buzzer-beating winner against Saints as well as the team emulating their Fours Premiership counterparts by going the whole weekend unbeaten. 

The WR5's team have two rounds remaining in their season and the results from Sunday will set the stage for a dramatic finale on September 3 at Stoke's Fenton Manor.
