Leicester Tigers' players had a coffee break with a difference as they took time out from training for today's semi-final clash with Harlequins. Front row trio Fraser Balmain, Jonny Harris and Kieran Brookes were put through their paces as potential baristas at the Costa Coffee, in The Parade, Oadby, near to their training ground. Cafe manager James Osmond said the players, who are regulars, got behind the counter to help raise money for charity. Prop forward Fraser, 21, said: "I was taking the money on the till. But I had people helping sort the change!" Jonny, 22, made a variety of coffees, including lattes and Americanos.
He said: "I think I got them right but I don't know what they tasted like." Kieran, 22, a fellow prop, said: "I was left with all the clearing up to do." James said: "We had about 20 Tigers here signing a shirt we hope to raffle off in future." Money raised from yesterday's collection and the shirt raffle will go to the Costa Foundation, which helps communities in coffee growing areas to build schools, toilets blocks, fresh running water facility's and much more.
