Watch the Match Highlights from the Premiership Rugby Cup game between Leicester Tigers and London Irish at Mattioli Woods Welford Road.

Tigers scored six tries in a 41-26 victory over The Exiles on Tuesday evening.

The win at Mattioli Woods Welford Road took Tigers back to the top of Pool 2, ahead of Newcastle Falcons who play their last game at Northampton on Wednesday.

Tigers had to come from behind twice in the first half to lead 17-14 at the break following scores by Bryce Hegarty, Hosea Saumaki and then Juan Pablo Socino in the last play of the half.

In the second period, Hegarty scored again and Charlie Clare added a double - though the first was initially credited to Sean Jansen - as Tigers made it three wins from four in the tournament.
