Meet the Tigers in town15/08/2013
As we continue our build up for the biggest pre-season fixture on the calendar, the whole Leicester Tigers squad will be at the Weighbridge, St. Helier (in front of the Royal Yacht) on Friday 23rd August to not just promote the meteoric clash between Jersey and the Aviva Premiership Champions, but also to greet the next generation of Island rugby stars.
The whole Tigers squad, including six British and Irish Lions and various England internationals, will be present to meet the public from 1pm onwards so get there early to not miss out.
The fixture between the two clubs, a day later (Saturday 24 August KO 3pm), will be Jersey's first pre-season fixture and the first chance to see the new players in action ahead of the most exciting season yet.
Tickets are selling fast, but can be bought from the Club Shop at St. Peter (10am - 1pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays). Tickets are also available from The Jersey Evening Post offices at Five Oaks 8.30am-5pm Monday-Friday and Red Properties on the Esplanade, Monday to Friday 9am-5pm.
Adult tickets cost £15 each for everyone, whilst Under 17s will be admitted free of charge (proof of age may be required).
The match is sponsored by Ashburton Investments and we would like to thank them for making this fixture possible against one of European Rugby's biggest names as Jersey look to topple the English Champions - can you afford not to be there!
