Leicester Tigers break premiership record

It’s been a cracking old season for the Tigers. Having been in the wilderness for the past few seasons, they’ve pounced back into action this season baring all their teeth.

Having last won the premiership title back in 2013, it has been nothing short of a drought for the Tigers.

For anyone that knows anything about the animal kingdom, anything at all; Tigers need to drink!

Following their 2013 success, Leicester reached four consecutive semi-finals but failed to progress any further. With changes in staff, management and players, the midlands-based side then failed to even reach the playoffs for the next four years.

With only an Anglo-Welsh cup to their name since their last Premiership win, Steve Borthwick’s men have turned some serious corners this season.

A terrific run in the European Challenge Cup last season saw them make their way right to the final, narrowly losing out to Montpellier by just one point. This proved a springboard for the 21-22 season as Leicester made a gallant effort to reach the Heineken Cup semi-final, as well as winning the league format of the Gallagher premiership.

It is the Gallagher Premiership that sets Leicester’s consistency apart this year. It has just been confirmed that Leicester have become the first-ever team to go through an entire Gallagher premiership season top of the table after every round.

An amazing achievement.

This sets up two local derbies for this year’s semi-finals.
