Tigers Wheelchair Swifts defeat Police in friendly

Leicester Tigers newest Wheelchair Rugby side, the Swifts, enjoyed a winning return on their second weekend of action.

The side recorded their first win in a two match series of friendlies against the Police last Sunday, February 11.

The matches were a charity exhibition fixture, aiming to raise money and awareness in support of police officers or staff who are injured or struggling with mental health issues. You can see the full list of results below.

Tigers Coach Jamie Stead, interviewed after the match, said: "We managed to rotate all 12 players and give them plenty of court time which was a special moment as a lot of players friends and family was in attendance.

"The police play a vital role in our community so it was a privilege to be able to help and support this fantastic organisation and give something back. That’s exactly what the Tigers family is about."
