Kenilworth youngsters take to the field at the home of Leicester Tigers

RUGBY UNION: YOUNGSTERS from Kenilworth Rugby Club followed in the footsteps of legends on Saturday by playing at Welford Road, home of the Leicester Tigers.

On the same day Tigers continued their Aviva Premiership campaign with a 30-3 victory over Newcastle Falcons, Kenilworth were in action in the Prima Tiger Cup.

They had the opportunity to play at the iconic stadium in front of family and supporters, and also make their way on to the pitch at half-time.

Captains had a photograph taken on the famous turf with Tigers scrum-half Jono Kitto.

More than 70 teams entered this year’s Prima Tiger Cup, which is enjoying its biggest season with festivals being played in Norfolk, Staffordshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire.

John Hanna, coach at Kenilworth, accompanied the team and said: “This has been absolutely brilliant.

“For the first time the children have understood what it really means to represent their club and they went out and played some brilliant rugby.”
