Jersey Reds will host Leicester Tigers in a pre-season fixture this summer.

Tigers face the Reds, who finished the season in fourth place in the RFU Championship, at Stade Santander International on Friday, August 19 (5.00pm).

This will be the fourth pre-season meeting between the clubs in the 11 seasons since the Reds reached Championship status, with previous visits in 2012, ’13 and ’21.

Reds director of rugby Harvey Biljon said: “We’re really excited at the prospect of testing ourselves against the Tigers once again. To have the English champions running out on our home ground will be a fantastic way to start the season, and the date is already one that’s standing out on our schedule.”

Ticket details will be confirmed shortly.

Tigers will confirm further details of the pre-season programme in coming weeks.
