5 of us going by car sitting at the back of the big new stand , the last time we were there was when George Ford was only about 19 before he went to Bath and he was playing as Flood was injured and he was sensational for a young kid and we got the usual walloping at Welford Road so hopefully Saturday will be better. Roll on can't wait.

Cheers FF07, I can't get there but looking forward to watching it on the tellybox.

I've seen us take some poundings at Welford Road (83-10!!) but I also remember a draw on a Friday night about ten years ago... before that game, it had been more than a year since any team had got so much as a losing bonus point at Leicester in the league. So there's always hope.

No bother, thanks for reading. Aye I'll have it on record...ive got a game for you Leipz, every time the bt sport cameras show Matt O'Connor, drink. Youll be wobbly by half time I bet.

Jeez that is some record! Tough place to go. Hopefully we pick a LBP up...

I was there for that game, and if I remember right we even got snowed on. Never mind, we still had fun on the bus on the way home.

Mike Delaney was at KP for the A Team fixture on Monday and looked very like he had a lightweight cast on his wrist/hand. I'd be surprised if he's in contention for the game.

Hope you have a good trip down, one that Deano and Wellsey will be relishing, think home advantage will see us through. Not expecting 5 points, you're putting in some good performances.

Thank you tiger burnie! Looking forward to experiencing the Welford Road atmosphere and sharing some crack with the tigers fans. Only time will tell... you guys will be after all 5 I think, you need it for the play offs.

I'm sure he hurt it tackling the glos 12 Mark Atkinson DP, got bounced off and landed awkwardly then was changed for Joel. Can't see him being fit.

The Falcons beat Leicester at Welford Road in the championship season with Pat Lam scoring twice. Don't think they've won there since, although they lost on one occasion only because the officials gave points to Leicester for a kick that did not go between the posts.
