Gallery | Tigers win away at Wasps

A pick of the best match action photographs from the Premiership Rugby Cup fixture between Leicester Tigers and Wasps Rugby in Round 2 of the 21/22 competition.

Tigers claimed a second win in the Cup with eight tries in the win away to Wasps on Saturday.

Following up on the opening-round win over Sale Sharks, Tigers led Wasps by 10 points at half-time but then pulled away as Hosea Saumaki grabbed a hat-trick of tries to go with a double from Guy Porter.

The win also made it 10 in a row in league and cup from the start of the season and 11 in all including Round 22 of the last campaign.

Kini Murimurivalu ran in the opening try but Tigers added only a penalty to their tally for a 10-0 lead at half-time before pulling away against a young Wasps line-up.

Looking to stretch a winning run which began at Wasps in Round 22 last season, Tigers added four tries in the opening stages of the second half to put the game out of their rivals’ reach.

Calum Green scored the first, Porter added a double to secure the bonus point and then James Whitcombe added the fifth as the lead reached 36 points before the hour mark.

Saumaki celebrated his first Tigers try entering the last quarter-hour with Tigers sealing a seventh away win in succession for the first time since 1996 and the wing quickly added two more.
