Leicester Tigers captain Toby Flood has been taken to hospital after he was injured in a collision with Ulster lock Dan Tuohy.
Leicester Tigers are heavy favourites to win yet another Premiership title against Northampton Saints at Twickenham.
A curry-house in Northampton has created a new dish to show its support for the Saints, which when lit produces a green and gold flame.
The Heineken Cup 2013-2014 fixtures have been released, with current Aviva Premiership champions Leicester Tigers playing Ulster Rugby on October 11.
The Northampton Saints will play Castres Olympique the day after.
The Rugy Football Union has published its judgement on Leicester Tigers' manager Richard Cockerill's ban.
The judgement said that at first there was "nothing untoward" but in the second occasion Cockerill's behaviour was regarded as "obscene, inappropriate and unprofessional".
It said his words could have been "construed as intimidation" as well as listing "various threats to instruct his players at half time to 'smash'" the opposing team. It said:
Essentially, what Mr. Cockerill was saying was that if the Match Officials did not change the way they controlled the game, he would intimate to the Leicester Tigers players at half time that they should employ illegitimate violence as a tactic in the second half.'
Mr. Cockerill approached Mr. Terheege again. He said he did not recall precisely what he was saying but he was talking at him in a much forthright manner and was using extensive foul and inappropriate language. The exchange was littered with him using the words “f” and “f**g”.
Aviva Premiership champions Leicester Tigers will kick start the season's fixtures with a home game against Worcester Warriors.
The Tigers picked up their tenth Aviva Premiership title in May against Northampton Saints with a 37-17 win at Twickenham.
"Every year the anticipation over the new fixtures grows and looking at the 2013-14 season it is clear we have huge matches every weekend," said Phil Winstanley the Rugby Director at Premiership Rugby.
"We've had three different Aviva Premiership champions in the last three years and last May we had a new club (Northampton Saints) in the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final."
Leicester Tigers have strongly criticised the Rugby Football Union over its handling of Richard Cockerill's ban.
Cockerill, Director of Rugby, was banned for nine matches for his conduct towards fourth official Stuart Terheege during Leicester's Aviva Premiership final victory over Northampton.
Leicester will wait to receive a copy of the full written judgement before deciding whether to appeal the verdict but they are angry with the RFU's role in the case.
A club statement said: "There are elements of the way in which they have conducted this case which, in our opinion, calls into question the new disciplinary structure and we will be taking this up with the RFU at the earliest opportunity."
Leicester Tigers boss Richard Cockerill has also been fined £500 as well as his nine match ban.
The former England hooker will be "suspended from involvement in match day coaching activities, before during and after matches" from 7 September to 2 November 2013.
Leicester Tigers boss Richard Cockerill has been given a nine match suspension by the Rugby Football Union over his conduct in the Premiership final.
He was found guilty of using obscene, inappropriate and/or unprofessional language and behaviour towards fourth official Stuart Terheege.
Leicester beat 14-man Northampton Saints 37-17 to win a record 10th English title.
Cockerill had pleaded not guilty to the charges at a disciplinary hearing.
Leicester Tigers and England star Manu Tuilagi will be fit to play for the British & Irisn Lions in Australia tomorrow.
Tuilagi suffered a shoulder problem during the victory over Queensland Reds 16 days ago, the same game in which Tommy Bowe broke his hand.
The centre says he's relieved the injury has cleared up in time for the tour's final midweek fixture against Melbourne Rebels.
Tuilagi will forge a Lions midfield partnership alongside his England colleague Brad Barritt tomorrow as the tourists look to bounce back from last week's loss against the Brumbies in Canberra.
A world record has been broken in Leicester for the longest game of rugby.
The 25 hour game, which was held at the Leicester Tigers stadium, raised around £50,000 to help the armed forces charity Scotty's Little Soldiers.
The players started yesterday at 11am and continued through the night.
The charity, which helps the children of servicemen and women who have been killed in action, was established by mother-of-two Nikki Scott, whose husband Corporal Lee Scott was killed in Afghanistan.
Leicester Tigers players posed for a photo this morning before the beginning of a 25-hour record-breaking attempt to play the longest game of rugby.
It is in aid of Scotty's Little Soldiers - a charity dedicated to supporting the children of men and women killed whilst serving in the British armed forces.
The charity provides treats, outings, trips and activities for families of the fallen, with the aim of offering a respite from the daily ups and downs of coping without a loved one.
The armed forces charity Scotty's Little Soldiers is attempting to break the world record for the longest-ever game of rugby union to help raise funds to support the charity. They will be playing for 25 hours non-stop in the Leicester Tigers stadium.
The Military Wives Choir are also singing and the British Army's Red Devil skydiving team will be flying into the stadium with the match ball before the game kicks off.
