Leicester Tigers reach the final after seeing off Bath

The Leicester Tigers booked their place in the Guinness Premiership final after they beat Bath comfortably at the Walkers Stadium on Saturday. The 24-10 win means that they will travel to Twickenham, to face London Irish in the final.

Tries by Sam Vesty, Dan Hipkiss, and Lewis Moody, as well as 12 points from the boot of Julien Dupuy, completed the fairly emphatic victory.

Fierce rivals all season, they’ve met four times, with Leicester winning three of those.
Some felt that Bath would have the edge on this occasion, as Leicester came off that gruelling Heineken Cup Semi last weekend.

The Tigers are a quality outfit though, and will probably be favourites to lift the trophy come next weekend in their fifth consecutive Guinness Premiership final appearance.

Martin Corry announced his retirement in an emotional farewell which included a lap of honour for the former England captain. His side will no doubt be determined to send him off in style next weekend.

Time: 06:25

  • Vesty has impressed me at 10, was his original position inside centre?

  • wheres tuilagi???

  • Vesty was originally a fly-half, but is quite versatile, and as is de-rigeur these days, inside centres can quite easily slot in at stand-off, and vice versa.

  • Tuilagi is injured.. will be back in about 2 weeks time iirc...

  • Tuilagi isn't injured, he was banned for a late tackle on Abendanon in the Heineken quarters. Shame too, but probably not for Bath...

  • if he plays well in the two up coming cup finals i reckon we'll see vesty at 10 for england against argentina

  • Dupuy is a class act.

  • not amazing by leicester its all about how leinster play with leinster and leicester at their best id go for leinster cuz the players they have but if leinster have even a bit of an off day leicester will whip them.

  • i hope they put vesty in at 10 for the argies he is the best we got at the moment the problem is they dont seem to like players who havent always been specialized in there posisitions
    got to be a worth a try rather than fatty goode,celeb danny,injured wilko or choker hodgson

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at May 12, 2009 6:12 pm  

  • i agree vesty plays so well, bath is unfortunate to have lost butch james, i think that would have really put vesty to the test. has he been up against any international flyhalfs?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at May 12, 2009 9:06 pm  

  • theres only one way to find out
    give him a chance if it dosent work out he has also been good playing in the centre

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at May 13, 2009 12:43 pm  

  • Well Jacky, through your blatant stereotyping you represent once again the great imbeciles and idiots of this planet. Congrats.
    And just for the record, 'Jacky' is an insult for a typically lame and ignorant person in French. No joke.

  • I think Ellis is much better than Dupuy, he's just to slow for passing and running

    is that not what makes a good scrum-half?

    and i think flood is better then vesty...is he back for the final or how bad is his ankle??

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at May 13, 2009 10:40 pm  

  • hes out for a long time 6 months he buggerd his achilles tendon

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at May 14, 2009 8:25 am  

  • I'm happy with either Dupuy and Ellis. Ellis is a starting scrum half in his own right but his abrasive edge helps when we need to close out the game.
    Vesty is not a top 10, but he really stands up when he fills in.

  • tuilagi will win leicester the final for them . hes done it once he'll do it again!
