OLLIE-HASSELL COLLINS V SALE SHARKS
A first Gallagher Premiership try in Tigers colours for Ollie Hassell-Collins.
The platform is set through hard graft in the loose as first Olly Cracknell hits a strong line and then fights for extra metres over the gainline before Mike Brown similarly draws in the attention of the Sale defence with incisive run of his own.
Spotting that the defence is tightly packed in, Joe Powell reacts quickest to sail the ball wide to miss all of the opposing defence and put O11ie through into space, the speedy winger touching down in front of a cheering Europcar stand.
MIKE BROWN v SALE SHARKS
A try built on strong carrying, this opening score set the tone for an abrasive contest.
There's a succession of bludgeoning rugby in the. build up as Tigers get to the line, where, first, a strong drive from Guy Porter rattles the sharks then Cameron Henderson rides the contact to make an extra couple of metres before the ball comes to Jamie Shillcock.
Here, just five metres out, the fly half shows composure and timing to dummy a miss pass and intelligently hit Brown on an unders line, spotting the full back with half a yard of space in front of him.
Brown finishes strongly, breaking through and diving for the blue tryline, showing fire and precision in equal measure.
DAN KELLY V BRISTOL BEARS
In a cunningly opportunistic move, Dan Kelly initially shows his athleticism, chasing down a well-placed kick from Tom Whiteley and exploiting a scattered Bristol midfield.
Collecting the ball off an awkward bounce, Kelly then showed a clean pair of heels to the Bristol fullback to score the club's first Gallagher Premiership try of the season.
