Yesterday was a proud day for De Montfort Students' Union as students performed in front of 22,000 people at Welford Road.

Singing, dancing, filming, playing - you name it - our sports, societies and media group showed everyone exactly how amazing they are as they performed before the match and at half-time of Leicester Tigers' gripping 21-11 victory over Bath on Sunday afternoon.

Braving the elements on a wet and bitterly cold day, they showcased their talent to the Tigers crowd and the Dance society even managed a mention on BT Sport's coverage for their performance despite the terrible conditions.

The day's activities were organised by a group of Business Management Students as part of a project for their course and as a result they invited DSU's societies, sports and media to contribute on the day.

DMU Steppers 'stepped hard' in the Final Whistle bar as the thousands of spectators readied themselves for the game.

DMU Saints formed part of the guard of honour following their performance ahead of the match before DMU Dance took to the centre circle at half-time as the heavens opened.

DMU men's and women's rugby took part in the Big Boot Challenge at half-time - where rugby balls are fired high into the air for participants to catch - and the men's team managed to catch five. Even in the slippery conditions they were only one short of matching the current leader on this season's leader board.

On behalf of everyone at DSU, thanks to everyone who got involved, and we hoped you've dried out and warmed up now...
