Figure image
George Chuter led the Leicester Tigers players to a dramatic victory in the Try Tuesdays Pub Quiz at Welford Road on Tuesday - with the aid of a sudden-death tiebreak question.

A total of 48 teams took part in the Pub Quiz in Final Whistle, supported by Everards, with the players coming out on top with the correct answer to the last question of the evening.

Chuter captained a team including Scott Hamilton, Julian Salvi, Thomas Waldrom, Owen Williams, Miles Benjamin, Sam Harrison, Michael Noone and Scott Steele.

After seven rounds of competition, the players were level with the ‘Mad Ferrets’ team but won on a tie-break after correctly stating the age of Winter Olympic medallist Jenny Jones. Chuter wrote ‘33’ as the players’ answer, with the runners-up just one year out after writing ‘32’.

Skipper Chuter was joined by his colleagues to collect the trophy donated by Everards, while there was also a Wooden Spoon prize for the last of the 48 teams.

Among the general knowledge rounds was a ‘Guess The Movie’ challenge, based on artwork drawn by other members of the Tigers squad. The artwork was raffled durintg the evening, as well as signed posters, Matt Hampson Foundation calendars and a special Tigers Family cartoon signed by Richard Cockerill.
