Enjoyable time thanks to Tigers
I am writing to say a massive thank you to the players and staff of the Leicester Tigers and Jersey RFC.
My wife and I, along with four of our friends, went to Jersey to support the Tigers on their pre-season friendly.
The trip was well-organised and things went very smoothly.
We attended a barbecue at Jersey's ground on Friday, August 10, and, to our surprise, all the players and staff were there.

They were a credit to the club as they were happy to pose for photos and have a chat with anyone who asked.
Also, the people from Jersey who were there made us feel very welcome.
At the game on the Saturday, the atmosphere was great and the banter between the supporters was excellent.
Good luck to the Tigers for the new season.
Phil Thompson, Newbold Verdon.
I was someone who was very much in favour for the removal of the Bowstring Bridge. I was fully aware of its historical value, but it was still an unsightly blot on the surrounding area.
Those who were opposed to its removal should now view the area with the newly-built De Montfort University swimming baths, which is a superb building, transforming that part of Braunstone Gate.
The area now has been so enhanced it's unbelievable.
I am not against preserving our heritage, but one has to be realistic when the decision has to be made.
Taking the Bowstring Bridge as an example, it would have cost a small fortune just to have kept it maintained and for what purpose?
Ray Newcombe, Aylestone.
We have relaxed our disciplines so much that they are non-existent.
Nothing matters and anything goes and we wonder why we get sick e-mails to a bereaved mother, 90-year-olds being raped, children abused, muggings and so on.
The church is also guilty of wrongdoing. But Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. We can all do better and we should at least try.
David Beck, Thurmaston.
