Tigers Academy made it three wins from three games in the Under-18 League season with a 34-7 victory over Wasps at Oval Park on Saturday afternoon.
Tigers opened the scoring when scrum-half Sam Edwards received an offload from wing Joe Browning after a good run down the left to dot down the try.
Wasps were quick to respond and built phases in Tigers 22 from the restart for Tom Bacon to score and it took a penalty from Harry Glynn to give Tigers the lead against at 10-7 a few minutes later.
Sam Costelow was next on the scoresheet as Wasps worked to get out their own 22 and Glynn intercepted before providing a quick offload to set Costelow away and under the posts. Glynn added the conversion and another penalty to stretch the lead to 10 points at 17-7 with just 20 minutes gone in the game.
There was another try before the break from Ronnie Du Randt as Tigers built through the phases and the centre found a gap to score and make it 22-7 at half-time.
Browning claimed the opening points of the second period as he showed his speed and quick feet to step defenders on a run down the wing to score in the corner.
It was the opposite wing, Leo Gilliland, who rounded off the tryscoring as Tigers worked the ball through hands from a scrum to go wide and, with Costelow adding the conversion, the lead reached 34-7.
