Melton RFC youngsters had the chance to develop their skills with 10-time English champions Leicester Tigers before the recent Aviva Premiership win against Sale Sharks.

The Melton squad took part in a Tigers Matchday Coaching Clinic, supported by Mark Group, working with the club’s coaches on their individual and team skills.

The young players also met a Tigers first-team player before joining the Welford Road crowd for the game.

They then got to tread on the hallowed turf as they posed for a team photo at half-time with Tigers star Julian Salvi.

Coach Mike Dickson said: “It’s the second time in about three months we’ve come down to do this and more of the players wanted to come this time.

“The experience the players get is fantastic, and it’s good for us coaches to have a professional look on everything.

“We told the clinic coaches a few things we’d like to work on prior to the session which they were able to adapt to which was great.”
