A youthful Leicester Tigers team travelled to Edgeley Park to play Newcastle Falcons, Worcester Warriors and hosts Sale Sharks in the JP Morgan Asset Management Premiership Rugby Sevens on July 29th 2011.
Alex Lewington, the 19-year-old Tiger’s Academy wing and full-back and ON (2010), captained the squad.
Lewington, who made two first-team appearances in last season’s LV= Cup, said ‘It’s awesome to wear a Tigers shirt. It’s always a special feeling every time you put one on and you cannot take it for granted. You want to treasure it.”
The JP Morgan Asset Management Premiership Rugby Sevens gives young players exposure in a really good competition.
