Perhaps the worst season in recent memory for a Tigers fan. Never have they finished in the bottom half of the Premiership Rugby table, and came perilously close this season, but just about survived the drop. The lowest the club had finished in the previous two decades was 6th in the 2002-03 season. This year, they finished 11th, just above bottom of the table Falcons.
Leicester lost a whopping 15 games and had the worst defensive record in the Gallagher Premiership. No one conceded more points than the Midlands outfit (632)- not even relegated Newcastle. They let in 81 tries, and scored only 47. Painful viewing if you’re a Tigers fan, but they did manage to survive the drop, and it’s a case of onwards and upwards in the 2019/20 season.
