Carty’s late three points meant the Irish visitors lost 29-23 at Welford Road having lead the Premiership leaders for a significant period of the game. Full match highlights are available below:

Tries from Carty and winger John Porch had Tigers on the back foot on home soil in the second half but scores from Freddie Steward and Hosea Saumaki secured Leicester’s 13th consecutive win.

Leicester head coach Steve Borthwick told BBC Radio 5 live: “They really tested us. We made too many errors and gave away too many penalties. The most pleasing thing for me is the way the players grabbed hold of that game, found what we needed to rectify and got on with doing it.”

Connacht head coach Andy Friend told BT Sport: “There’s a frustration that we were up and the yellow card hurt us, but that’s Leicester Tigers. They’ve got a strong scrum. They flexed their muscle there and we paid the penalty.”
