Derby success brings 10th academy win

Figure image
Tigers Academy secured their 10th win on the bounce on Saturday as they earned the latest bragging rights over East Midlands rivals Northampton Saints.

Having held a slender 3-0 lead at the end of the first half, Tigers went on to record a convincing 27-7 victory at Oval Park.

Tigers outscored their opponents by four tries to one as they banished the memories of a 15-10 away defeat in the very first match of the season.

Hooker Tom Collett scored his third try in two games, with blindside flanker Josh Goldspink grabbing a brace of scores and lock Dan Hemingway also crossing for the home side. Outside-half Joe Glover added two conversions and a penalty as Tigers built on last week’s 14-11 win over Sale Sharks.
