Alesana Tuilagi huge hit on Mark van Gisbergen

Alesana Tuilagi huge hit on Mark van Gisbergen

Leicester Tigers beat Wasps 21-12 at Welford Road on Saturday night, with Jeremy Staunton and Steve Mafi scoring two first half tries which put them well ahead. Shortly before the end of the game, Alesana Tuilagi hammered the nail in.

Wasps could only muster four penalty kicks, from Dave Walder, while it was the Tigers who looked to play more of the rugby in what was a muddy game played in conditions that werent conducive to expansive play.

Tigers extended their lead at the top of the Aviva Premiership with the win, and despite Wasps being excellent on defence, they couldnt create anything that would crack the opposition line. "Sport can be tough sometimes," said Shaun Edwards.

"I feel we deserved a bonus point out of that game, with the effort of the players out there. Our defence was superb in the 22."

Coach Richard Cokerill of Leicester said that Wasps were negative all round. "It was almost rugby union versus rugby league at some stages. We scored two tries to zip against a team that didn't really come to play," he said, although he did concede that they Dd up well.

The Tigers D was pretty good too, with wing Alesana Tuilagi coming in and smashing Wasps fullback Mark Van Gisbergen shortly before full time, showing that even with game time almost up, you can never be too careful when the Tuilagi brothers are around.
