The under-10 side travelled to Welford Road on Saturday April 15 to take part in the Prima Tiger Cup, a round-robin competition for amateur clubs.

After playing in front of family and supporters, the team also made their way on to the pitch at half-time between Leicester’s match with Newcastle. The captains had a photograph taken with Tigers scrum-half Jono Kitto.

John Hanna, coach at Kenilworth RFC, said: “This has been absolutely brilliant.
