In the club's first-ever league fixture at Mattioli Woods Welford Road, the Leicester Tigers Women's team defeated Cheltenham in Round 2 of the 2022/23 Championship North season.

Four tries in the first half paved the way for an impressive win over the defending league champions and two more followed the break as Tigers won 36-0.

Tighthead prop Ofure Ugiagbe had the honour of scoring the first try on home ground and further scores quickly followed, with a bonus point in the bag before half-time, reached with a 26-point lead.

The second half yielded one more try as Tigers made it two wins from two games in the team’s first season of league rugby in front of an appreciative home crowd.
