Leicester Tigers booked a place in this year’s EDF Energy Anglo-Welsh Cup Final with a 34-24 victory over London Wasps in an entertaining clash at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
Andy Goode featured prominently as he overshadowed England’s new star flyhalf Danny Cipriani. Goode scored one try, created another two and kicked 14 points, his inspired performance showing his class, maturity and of course, experience.
Cipriani did show touches of brilliance though, scoring a great try of his own as well as putting Paul Sackey away for a try with a neat flick pass on one occasion.
Wasps battled to the end but tries from Seru Rabeni, Dan Hipkiss and Martin Castrogiovanni sealed Leicester’s win.
The Tigers will meet Ospreys in the final at Twickenham on 12 April, which is set to be quite an occasion.
