  • Leicester Tigers 25 - 7 Bournemouth Lions 
  • Leicester Tigers 24 - 21 West Country Hawks

Following the team's victory, coach Jamie Stead was delighted with the triumph. "Another fantastic weekend, this team just keeps getting stronger and stronger and we are only going to get better! We are really building something special here as a team. Thank you for all your hard work and effort and the buy-in to what we wanted to achieve as a group.

"I couldn’t be any more proud of each and everyone of the team and how much you have progressed as individuals and a collective. You are all well deserved champions! You smashed every team this season. Enjoy being the best WR5s Team in Great Britain and in Europe, you deserve it".
