Watch the Match Highlights from the fixture between Leicester Tigers and Connacht Rugby in Round 2 of the 21/22 Heineken Champions Cup.

Tigers took the maximum five points from the six-point, 29-23 victory at Mattioli Woods Welford Road.

After both sides got off to a winning start in Round 1, it was Tigers who took the honours in Round 2, coming back from an eight-point deficit early in the second half to extend the team’s unbeaten run since the start of the season.

Tries from Nic Dolly and Bryce Hegarty in a spell around the 20-minute mark took Tigers 12-3 in front before a first Connacht try and then the visitors scored a breakaway second to lead by two points at half-time.

They extended that to a 20-12 lead before Freddie Steward and Hosea Saumaki scored in reply as Tigers capitalised on fresh momentum in attack to clinch the bonus point and a decisive lead.

The visitors did land a last-gasp drop goal to ensure they had some consolation in the form of one point from their trip, but it was Tigers who protected their unbeaten run up to Christmas.
