Harrison hopeful of Leicester improvement

26th July 2019, 18:29 by Aidan Perkins

Scrum-half Sam Harrison says there's more positivity in the Leicester Tigers squad as they hope for better in the upcoming season.

The Tigers finished second-bottom in the Gallagher Premiership last term, winning just seven of their 22 games.

However, there is hope they will be able to compete much better in the 2019-20 campaign with the players all back working hard in pre-season training.

Harrison says he feels fitter after being put through his paces in recent days as preparations continue and he senses a more positive attitude amongst his teammates.

He told LTTV: "It has been good. I've settled back in, got a bit of fitness back.

"It's good to be back with all the lads who are a lot younger than me.

"As a group, there will be a genuine excitement, as opposed to the last few years. I do feel this year, genuinely, there will be the excitement that is is a new start now.

"We've got so much ahead of us as a group."
