Pre-match silence to honour heroes

The Ospreys and Leicester Tigers will be observing a minute's silence to mark Remembrance Sunday this weekend ahead of kick-off tonight.

The players and management will pause to pay their respects to the sacrifices made by members of the Armed Forces who have been killed or wounded serving their country before the games gets underway, and as such, supporters attending the game are advised to be inside the ground and in place early to avoid causing any unintended disruption. 

The minute’s silence follows on from a private two-minute silence held by the playing squad and management group at 11am on Thursday morning ahead of the final training run at the Riverside Hardware Brewery Field to mark Armistice Day.
