Leicester Tigers have reached another social media milestone with six-second video app Vine passing the 250,000 loops mark.

Tigers bring supporters closer to the club and the players by giving them a peek behind the scenes at Welford Road and Oval Park through short films posted on Vine.
The Vine videos are all six seconds long and include footage of match action, training and media conferences as well as films taken on away trips at home and abroad.
One of the Vine videos, taken on Armistice Day, shows director of rugby Richard Cockerill reading the names of the Tigers players who never returned from action in World War I before starting the traditional two minutes’ silence. Click here to watch the video.
The films are shared through the Leicester Tigers Twitter and Facebook pages and have now been watched 250,000 times and counting.
