WISBECH rugby starlets rubbed shoulders with some of the biggest names in the business when they visited Guinness Premiership champions Leicester Tigers for a coaching session.

More than 100 players aged seven to 16, coaches and parents from Wisbech Rugby Club travelled to the Tigers' training ground for a coaching session.

They then met Tigers star Billy Twelvetrees, who signed autographs and answered questions on what it's like to be a Premiership rugby player.

After their coaching session, the squad travelled to the Tigers' Welford Road stadium to watch the team play local rivals, Northampton Saints, in a Premiership fixture. Leicester won the game 29-15.

During their pitch walk and photo session at half time, the Wisbech teams were given a good reception by the 24,000 Tigers crowd.
