Pre-season double header announced
9th June 2014
Knights to take part in Welford Road double header.
The Knights will get a pre-season test of the highest order on Friday, August 29th, as they travel to Welford Road to take on a Leicester Tigers XV.
The Tigers squad will be divided between two fixtures as they take on the Knights at 5pm, then face Cardiff Blues in the second leg of a rugby double header at 7.30pm.
Tickets for the even will go on sale soon and full details of how to get yours will be posted on www.drfc.co.uk.
The Knights have enjoyed a good relationship with the men from Welford Road and benefited from the talents of young Tigers props Tiziano Pasquali and Riccardo Brugnara last season, two players who may well scrum down against the Knights on August 29th.
Speaking ahead of the fixture Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill said: “Two games on one day provides a good opportunity for us to get game-time into all of the players in the final weekend before the start of the premiership season.
“It should prove an attractive evening for the supporters too.”
