Watch the Match Highlights from the Leicester Tigers fixture against Newcastle Falcons at Mattioli Woods Welford Road in Round 12 of the 21/22 Gallagher Premiership season.

Tigers extended their unbeaten run into the new year with a 31-0 triumph against Falcons on Sunday.

After making it 10 out of 10 in the league with Christmas victory at Bristol, Tigers stretched their winning run to 16 matches in all competitions since defeat in Round 21 last season and stayed top of the Gallagher Premiership with 50 points.

After an opening period dominated by heavy rain at Mattioli Woods Welford Road, Tigers turned pressure into points in the 10 minutes before half-time thanks to tries from a driving maul – with Dan Kelly credited for the touchdown – and then Matt Scott as they led 17-0 at the break.

George Martin provided the third try after a prolonged spell of pressure in the second half. But Tigers had to wait until the final action of the game to add a fourth from Harry Potter to seal the full five points.
