Leicester Tigers' victory over London Irish proved a memorable occasion for Molly Smith after she presented Jordan Crane with his Goldsmiths Player of the Month Award.

Molly, 19, of Hinckley, won a competition run by award sponsors Goldsmiths to meet the Player of the Month winner in the tunnel the end of Saturday’s game.

Crane finished ahead of Rob Hawkins and Graham Kitchener in the supporters’ voting and Molly, who also won a family ticket to the game, presented him with a Tag Heuer watch on the final whistle.

“It was a great experience," said Molly, who entered the competition via the Tigers Twitter page. "The atmosphere was buzzing and it was a great game to go and watch. Everyone was really nice and I had a chat with Jordan afterwards about the game.”

Crane said he was delighted to receive the award, particularly after missing all of last season with a knee injury.

“It’s great to get the award,” he said “At the start of the season it was tough getting back but I feel that my form has been getting better and hopefully this shows that we’re peaking at the right time.

“As a team we’re going well. Perhaps the last two performances haven’t been as good as we would have liked but they serve as a reminder of where we need to be at for the weekend.”
