The most talked about game of the Aviva Premiership this past weekend was the incredible 41-41 draw that took place at Welford Road on Saturday, the highest scoring draw in Premiership history.
Leicester Tigers were 14 points up in the second half but tossed it away as Gloucester came back, then snatched a vital intercept try on the stroke of fulltime, scored by skilful centre Eliota Fuimano-Sapolu .
It was a great occasion as the dry weather and sunshine of Welford Road provided a great day of rugby for the 24 000 on hand, as both sides chanced their arm, displaying some great running rugby and individual moments of magic.
For the Tigers, powerful wing Alesana Tuilagi scored a quickfire hat-trick, while one of the best moment for Gloucester was the sensational flick on from Matt Cox for Andy Hazell's try.
In the end it came down to a loose pass from Jeremy Staunton that gifted Fuiamno-Sapolu the runaway try, and a conversion that ended the game with a 41-41 draw.
