Watch the Match Highlights between Leicester Tigers and Montpellier at Twickenham in the Final of the 2020/21 European Challenge Cup.

Tigers were beaten by a single point in the Final as Montpellier lifted the trophy with an 18-17 victory on Friday evening.

A crowd of 10,000 – thanks to relaxation of regulations on Covid measures – greeted the teams and thy were still in good voice as the game reached half-time all-square at 10-10 after a Harry Wells try for Tigers and one from wing Vincent Rattez for their rivals.

Forward pressure brought a second Tigers try for Jasper Wiese in the early stages of the second period before the French fought back with a well-worked score for Johan Goosen to lead by a point on the hour mark and it stayed that way to the end as Montpellier took the trophy for a second time in five years.
