For Welcomm Communications this Saturday’s Tigers game at Welford road against Harlequins offered more excitement than just the rugby, as their corporate 7s player Leo Donnelly accepted his Player of the tournament award on the pitch at half time from Manu Tuilagi.
This was the first year that Welcomm entered The Tigers Event Corporate 7s tournament, with a team made up of their customers and O2 colleagues. With many large Leicestershire-based companies like the Hilton Group, PWC, Jaguar Landrover, HSBC also attending, Welcomm did well to make it through to the final on their first year. They were knocked out by sportswear company G Force who then went on to win the tournament. But it was Welcomm’s player Leo Donnelly who was selected as the player of the tournament, by a panel of rugby International greats that attended on the day including Brian Moore, Rory Underwood, Peter Wheeler, Matt Poole and Harry Ellis.
Welcomm’s Chairman Chris Stanton and player Leo Donnelly were then lucky enough to receive this trophy in front of a packed crowd of 24,500 at Welford Road this sat at the Tigers V Quins game.
