Corry keen for two more wins

Captain Martin Corry led Leicester Tigers through the Guinness Premiership semi-final on Saturday and he will have the honour of leading the team out at the team's second appearance at Twickenham next Saturday.

The Premiership semi-final pitched Tigers, the league's top try-scoring side, against a Bristol side that possessed the tightest defence in the Premiership, with Leicester coming home 26-14 victors in front of a 10,675 crowd at Welford Road.

England No.8 Corry said Tigers did not produce the performance they had wanted for the last home game of the season, but victory ensured a Guinness Premiership Final appearance against Gloucester and another chance of silverware after a Twickenham win in the EDF Energy Cup Final last month.

"Bristol are a quality side, they have shown that with their results throughout the season," said Corry after first-half tries from Harry Ellis and Geordan Murphy had laid the platform for victory. "They built their form on a tremendous defence this season and we had to work really hard to break them down.

"We did not play at our best. As the last game of the season at Welford Road, we wanted to put on a real performance, but the win does mean that we have a couple of games left in our season now. We have got where we wanted to get to, we have got two games left and two wins are needed."
