Is it on BT, if so does anyone know if Tigers will be doing the BT Link as I have to watch on my computer? Thanks.
It is on BT 1 Sport 19:00 to 22:30. As it is a European game it is not covered by the BT link given for Tigers home games in the Premiership ~ Sorry it's a case of down to the Pub or phone a friend! :smt030

Anyone know what happened to the Montpellier Prop Fitchen in his citing hearing yesterday evening? When do the French normally announce the results of these?

Steve Borthwick has named the Leicester Tigers matchday squad for the European Challenge Cup Final against Montpellier at Twickenham Stadium.

Tom Youngs will captain the side, starting alongside Ellis Genge and Dan Cole in the Leicester front row, with Harry Wells and Calum Green as the second-row pairing.

Cyle Brink is at openside flanker, joining Hanro Liebenberg and Jasper Wiese in the Leicester back row.

"Our fans have been incredibly supportive from afar and we’re pleased they have the chance to enjoy some live rugby in the upcoming weeks, starting on Friday night at Twickenham"

Leicester Tigers Head Coach Steve Borthwick
Richard Wigglesworth starts at scrum-half, joining fly-half George Ford as the half-backs for Tigers, and Dan Kelly links with Matías Moroni in the Leicester midfield.

Guy Porter, Nemani Nadolo and Freddie Steward make up an unchanged Tigers back-three from the win over Harlequins last weekend.

Charlie Clare, Luan de Bruin, Cameron Henderson and Tommy Reffell are the forwards on the Leicester bench, with Ben Youngs, Zack Henry and Kini Murimurivalu as the replacement backs.

Speaking about the matchday squad named, Borthwick said: “It has been a squad-wide effort to get to this Final, with more than 40 players representing Leicester Tigers in the European Challenge Cup this season.

“On Friday night, these 23 players have the privilege of representing everyone involved at Tigers, our supporters and Leicestershire.”

Previewing the Final, the Tigers head coach added: “Montpellier are one of the game’s most well-resourced clubs and have invested heavily in building this star-studded squad.

“We know the challenge that awaits us on Friday night at Twickenham and we’re excited for the opportunity at this point on our journey as a squad.”

The Tigers head coach is also pleased that the game will be open to the club’s support for the first time since February last year.

“We haven’t shared a matchday with Tigers supporters for more than a year and are excited that we get that chance again on Friday night,” he said.

“Our fans have been incredibly supportive from afar and we’re pleased they have the chance to enjoy some live rugby in the upcoming weeks, starting on Friday night at Twickenham.

“I’m very pleased our players get the chance to play in front of Tigers fans again after so long.

“In every game we go out to put in a performance that our entire Tigers community is proud of, and that is what I will be asking of the players again this week.”

Well, that's it - the team is up - always a few surprises but I think we can all forget about that now and just concentrate on cheering them on tomorrow night at HQ.

Still tickets available - surprised but I guess a reflection of only 1 team's fans allowed to attend and it's Friday night at Twickenham too

Cant wait to be there

Wigglesworth? too slow now IMO but maybe his vast experience will steady the nerves for a lot of players. Great looking squad.

Wigglesworth! Just NO.

Stop it now Borthwick, Youngs to start and JVP on the bench. JVP is the future, give the lad a taste of the big time!
