#TigersOnTour enjoy their day at rugby HQ

The Leicester Tigers travelling fans may not have been the majority in number at The Clash on Saturday afternoon, but they certainly were in voice as their support was heard from every stand at Rugby HQ throughout the bonus-point victory.

Never one to disappoint, no matter where their team is playing across England or Europe, the Tigers faithful made the trip south in force for the Round 19 fixture against long-time rivals Bath and were rewarded for their efforts with a five tries to one win to make it five in a row in the Aviva Premiership.

Following on from the Round 18 sell-out at Welford Road against Wasps and ahead of the upcoming East Midlands Derby with Northampton Saints, which is on track to sell-out before the weekend arrives, the Red, White and Green Army from Leicester made themselves known among the more than 60,000 strong crowd at Twickenham.

The club's Mobile App was flooded with photos of supporters who made the journey to London, while social media was a buzz with images of #TigersOnTour cheering for Matt O'Connor's men as they extended their unbeaten run to eight weeks with the 15-point win.

Speaking with LTTV in the Twickenham changing rooms after the win, Man of the Match Sione Kalamafoni said the level of support was a 'massive' boost to the players on the pitch.

"At this stage of the season, for us to have that level of support at home and away, it's just massive for us."

"We're looking forward to another big crowd when we welcome Saints to Welford Road in the next round."
