Leicester Tigers and London Irish classic at the Madjeski

While we play catch up after a busy few weeks of rugby, we’ve got another classic Guinness Premiership match for you from last weekend at the Madjeski Stadium.

London Irish staged a brave fight back against the Leicester Tigers but eventually came up second best as the Tigers withstood the pressure to win the match 31-28.

Matt Smith scored two tries for Leicester, Marcos Ayerza one, and it was Julien Dupuy who kicked 16 points.

They had a 31-16 lead with six minutes left in the match, but Irish came back, scoring two tries in three minutes through Seilala Mapusua and Steffon Armitage, setting up a tense ending to the game.

But the Tigers held on to win the pulsating game and claim a first away victory in the Guinness Premiership since September. Captain Aaron Mauger was named man of the match for his part in the impressive victory.

Time: 08:39

  • After watching England Ireland in the most boring game ive ever watched. I then watched this game the day after which is probably the best game I have ever watched!

    Tigers are finally hitting the kind of form they have been threatening all season. With such quality in the backs you cant afford to not play expansive rugby.

    Watch out Europe! The true Tigers are back!

  • it's rare to see this game level in guinness league.

    London Irish are very entertaining to watch. I remember against toulouse (they also lost) which was wonderful.

    tigers seem to be in pretty good shape for european spring finals

  • That tigers blue jersey is pretty nice, is it their new (this seasons) away kit?
    Great game and ive just heard strettle is back in the england squad. Maybe he'll bring some much needed spark back.
