Tigers Team For Pre-Season Friendly

Rotherham, the strongest team in Yorkshire, visit the Tigers training
ground at Oval Park on Saturday (kick-off 3PM) for a pre-season
friendly. Leicester's team manager, Dean Richards has named a team,
which features new signings Jason Critchley and Ben Kay for their
first real run out in Tigers colours.

Critchley, a dual Rugby League international who joined the club from
Widnes Vikings finds a place on the left wing, whilst England
Under-21 international Kay (ex-Waterloo) partners Neil Fletcher in
the 2nd row. Dorian West skippers the side in a game that is being
played at Oval Park due to the installation of new floodlights at
Welford Road in readiness for the Rugby World Cup.

The Tigers have also lined up a final warm-up match with Rotherham's
great rivals Leeds Tykes at Headingley next Saturday
