Leicester Tigers who recently signed a sponsorship deal with Canterbury have now launched their new strip for the season 2012/13. The team who are peaking nicely in the 2011/12 Premiership must be firm favourites to lift the trophy at Twickenham on Saturday 26th May 2012.
Here is one of the versions of the new shirts which we think will be popular in the striking tiger effect pattern. They are available to purchase on-line here and will feature in the games againsr Bath this weekend:

The Leicester Tigers new strip for 2012/13 keeps to the traditional colours of green, red and white, but has a striking tiger effect in the patterns. Caterpillar the main sponsor still features on the torso, with CCC of Canterbury the manufacturer on the right chest and the club logo on the left. The shirts will be stocked in the UK from approximately 4 May 2012. To place your order, just follow this link to the Leicester Tigers Rugby Shirts page.
2012 and beyond for Tigers
The Rugby World Cup strained the resources of the Tigers at the beggining of the 2011/12 Premier season and also impacted on the Heineken Cup ambitions. So much so that there were mutterings about coaching changes. But with their squad back in place the club has been storming up the table and now look strong favourites to take the Premier crown for this season. We would not bet on them not continuing this into the 2012/13 season and also reaching the final stages of the Heineken Cup. So 2012 our prediction would be:
Premiership: Finalists (1st)
Heineken Cup: Losing Semi-finalists
