They'll probably sell it out every week too. The best are just getting better and better (and richer).

Leicester have revealed a redevelopment plan which will raise the capacity of their Welford Road stadium from 16,815 to 25,000 by 2011.

The plan, worth nearly 30m, still has to be ratified at board level but work could start as early as next spring.

Tigers chairman Peter Tom told the Leicester Mercury: "We want this to be one of the most intimidating stadiums for anyone to play at.

We've been told that its pretty much full steam ahead, starting with the replacement Next stand next spring (the one facing the TV cameras).  The new stand will be built behind the present one, thus allowing us to keep the old one open during most of the building work.  There has been some debate over whether or not 25,000 is the right capacity; but it seems about right to me.

Your Club does not do much wrong with its all out organisation skills. I accept like many others TIGERS are a first class outfit, who over the years have attracted class players and staff to Leicester when the bright lights of London and France were calling.

I can see you going Onwards and upwards, and an example of how to run a club, both the playing side and commercially.

A true example of how to SUCCESFULLY run a rugby club!
