Watch the Match Highlights from the Premiership Rugby Cup semi-final between London Irish and Leicester Tigers at Brentford Community Stadium.

Tigers’ run in the Premiership Rugby Cup ended with semi-final defeat on Tuesday evening.

In the teams’ fourth meeting of the season, the Exiles scored five first-half tries to lead 31-6 at the break and set the platform for their victory at Brentford Community Stadium.

Scrum-half Sam Edwards, who was among 13 players aged 21 or under in the Tigers matchday squad, came off the bench to score his first try for the club in the last quarter of an hour and Hosea Saumaki provided a remarkable finish for his 10th of the season before a last-minute interception try rounded off the scoring for the hosts.
