Bold as brass they were.

Riding a horse right through the middle of t' Rugby League country, wi' nerry a care in the world, wearing a reet owd Tigers shirt.

I would've stopped me Jeep, but horse looked a bit skittish.

So come on, who else is up here maintaining the Faith? Show yerself!

I was stopped in a supermarket by a guy who asked if I knew what shirt I was wearing.It was my Tigers shirt and I told him "of course",he was from Leicester and hadn't expected to "our colours" in Dundee.

I was waiting at Carlisle railway station a few weeks back one Saturday evening.

An unknown fellow jumped off the train and headed towards me - 'How did we play - did we win' he asked.

Tigers are everywhere - there's a Cotton Oxford shop in Gretna and the Tigers shirts always seem to sell pretty quickly when they have them in.
Bring back the rolling maul...and they did

It was on the outskirts of Brandesburton, on the way to the River Hull.

I didn't stop because experience tells me that most horses think a blue Jeep looks EXACTLY like lion.

I've lived in Halifax then Leeds since i was 16 with a couple of year in between travelling and living back in Leicester, I'm 32 now. I have proudly been wearing various tigers shirts for the whole time. So if you see one in Leeds it might be me. Although there are a few wandering round the Leeds area!!

Not sure who it may be, you'll see every variety of Tigers shirt at Hall Farm, Routh and theres one rides a horse at Little Weighton, she looks well in it actually!! There is a lad from Brands wears one but it is only cos it was cheap in Cotton Traders in York!!

and if you are ever in Zambia or Zimbabwe and see a young man wearing a Tigers baseball cap, that'll be my mate TK. when I gave it to him, I told him he was now a Tigers fan for life.

I was wearing my Tigers shirt when I heard a "Yoohoo Tigers fan!" . It did seem odd to be hailed by a Sharks fan on a wet railway platform halfway up a mountain in Norway!

We will not ask what you were doing halfway up a wet Norwegian mountain!

When I was in Austria last year (same time as the roundy ball european championship), the Austrian National Football team coach recognised by England Rugby top straight away, the following day I was wearing a Tigers top in the bar, and sod me, he recognised that as well, apparantly having seen them away at Calvisano a few seasons ago!

Often see Tigers tops around Preston, normally on students!
