Leicester Tigers will wear lettered shirts for the historic match against the Barbarians at Welford Road next Tuesday (November 4).

For nearly 90 years, the Tigers versus Barbarians match was the biggest fixture in the club calendar, and in recognition of those traditional fixtures, letters will replace numbers on the back of the team’s shirts.
Tigers have worn lettered shirts in recent international fixtures, including against South Africa and Australia at Welford Road.
