TIGERS CLASSIC | 1979 John Player Cup Final

Supporters can enjoy one of the club's most famous victories, the 1979 John Player Cup Final win over Moseley at Twickenham, in this week's Tigers Classic on Saturday (April 25) afternoon on LTTV.

Following recent re-lived classics including the 2001 Heineken Cup win over Stade Francais, 1993 record-breaking victory over the Barbarians at Welford Road and 1997 European semi-final against Toulouse, we have dug further in to the LTTV Archive to pick out the Cup Final against Moseley.

The first of a history-making three consecutive Cup wins for Tigers, the 1979 win included Leicester legends Peter Wheeler, Dusty Hare, Paul Dodge, Les Cusworth, Ian 'Dosser' Smith, Steve Kenney

Coached by Chalkie White, the Tigers side came from behind to defeat Moseley in the decider at HQ in front of 18,000 fans on the famous day for the club.
