Leicester scrum-half Ben Youngs believes the Welford Road fans will have a big part to play in the crunch Aviva Premiership semi-final against Harlequins.


The Tigers certainly won't have it all their own way though as Quins have won on their last two visits to Leicester and completed the double over Richard Cockerill's  side this season. However, with 20,000 fans expected to pack into Welford Road, Youngs believes home advantage could make a difference in their quest to make it to  Twickenham. He said: "I hope the crowd are loud and brilliant like they were in the Heineken Cup against Toulouse. "They play a huge part in what we do and we want  them to make Leicester an intimidating place to come. We will draw confidence from being at home because we love it. It should be a cracking game." Leicester are 4/11 to beat Quins, with the winners of Saturday's semi-final coming up against either Saracens or Northampton in the final. Saints are 11/5 to win the match and reach Twickenham.
