Youngs calls for professional performance

Ben Youngs says Leicester Tigers will be looking for a professional performance when they take on Benetton Treviso.

Tigers will face Italian opposition for the sixth successive Heineken Cup season when Saturday’s Pool 5 clash kicks off at 1.35pm UK time.

Tigers are currently second in Pool 5, three points behind Ulster Rugby, who play Montpellier at Ravenhill on Friday night. Tigers host Ulster at Welford Road next Saturday (kick-off 6pm) in the final pool game.

Youngs said: “We have struggled down in Treviso before and we know they are a good side. They make life very difficult for you and we know it’s going to be a very physical challenge.

"The first 20 minutes will be important. We don't want to give them a sniff. It’s about going there and getting the job done as professionally as possible."

Tigers fans travelling to Treviso can email their photos of the trip to [email protected] and we will use them in our Digital Diary and in the matchday programme for our next home game against Ulster.

Supporters not travelling to the game can watch live coverage on the red button on Sky Sports 2 and BBC Radio Leicester will have live on commentary on 104.9FM, DAB and online (UK only).
