Academy win eight on the bounce

Figure image
Tigers Academy continued their impressive season as they registered their eighth successive win thanks to victory over Leeds Carnegie at Oval Park on Saturday.

Tigers scored four tries in total, with prop Adam Parkins grabbing a brace and hooker Tom Collett and full back Mitchell Culpin also crossing the Leeds line. 

Fly-half Rickie Aley added a penalty, a conversion and a drop goal as Tigers built on recent victories over Champagnat, Naas and Moseley, as well as wins over Cornish Pirates, Nottingham, Bedford and Moseley once more in 2007.

This weekend’s game against Nottingham has now been cancelled, meaning Tigers’ next fixture will take place at Oval Park on Friday, February 22nd (kick-off 7pm) when they look to avenge an early-season defeat against Sale Sharks.
