WATCH: Mat Tait says farewell to Welford Road

Retiring Leicester and England veteran Mat Tait said farewell to the #TigersFamily at Welford Road during half-time in the Gallagher Premiership game against Wasps and spoke to LTTV on the pitch after the 25,000 strong crowd said #ThanksTaity on Saturday afternoon.

Tait walked around the historic pitch alongside his two sons and was met with a standing ovation from both Tigers and Wasps supporters after announcing earlier in the week that his 15 year career would come to an end due to injury.

Tait made 38 appearances for England, including a starring role throughout the 2007 Rugby World Cup run to the final against South Africa, and 197 Premiership appearances for Tigers, Newcastle Falcons and Sale Sharks.
