A behind-the-scenes documentary providing an insight into life at Leicester Tigers has been given the thumbs up by supporters.

BT Sport last night showed the second episode of XV, a documentary series following the Tigers during the 2016/16 season.
Centred around the Aviva Premiership clash with Gloucester Rugby at Welford Road and the Champions Cup quarter-final, the documentary team gained unprecedented access to the squad during a crucial fortnight in the season.
The film included interviews at home with club captain Ed Slater, Aussie Lachlan McCaffrey on living and playing on the other side of the world and Will Evans after the teenager made his first-team debut. It also included exclusive access to training, to team meetings and to the Tigers dressing room.
Fans took to social media to give their verdict on the programme.
On Twitter @HangerEmma said: “XV was absolutely brilliant – I'm so proud of this club – makes me feel so proud to call these lads my team #Tigersfamily”, @mjsmith392334 added:  “Great behind the scenes snapshot, so proud to be a member of #tigersfamily”, @Matt_RJ87 said: “Loved the latest @LeicesterTigers documentary on @btsport – solid reminder of how committed the boys are! #Tigersfamily #heartheroar” while @stigabell tweeted: “It was brilliant, great access and nicely shot. They seem a great bunch of lads this year.”
The programme is scheduled to be repeated at midnight on Wednesday on BT Sport 1, at midnight on Thursday on BT Sport Europe and at 10.30pm on Friday on BT Sport Europe. Click here for BT Sport listings.
