Wheelchair star humbled to win alongside heroes

The winner of Leicester Tigers Wheelchair Rugby Team’s Player’s Player of the Year award has revealed how ‘humbled’ he feels to wear the club crest.

Nick Cummins, who also plays for the Great Britain team, collected his award at the Supporters Awards at Welford Road, where he was recognised alongside England and Leicester fly-half George Ford (Supporters’ Player) and wing Jonny May (Try of the Season), among others.

“It means a great deal to come to an event like this and win an award like all of the other Tigers players,” he told LTTV.

“I’m from Leicester, and Leicester Tigers are obviously a massive club. You say you play for Leicester Tigers Wheelchair Rugby … and it just puts a rubber stamp on what we do.

“Tigers are the only [professional] team in the world, as far as I’m aware, that actually gives their name to a team, so they’re a pioneer in that respect and we’re very grateful.”
