All seven Leicester Tigers players away on international duty saw some of the action in the second weekend of the RBS 6 Nations Championship.

England completed the match against Wales with four Tigers on the field. Harry Ellis played all 80 minutes of the 23-15 defeat at the Millennium Stadium in his 24th senior cap, with Toby Flood (52 minutes), Tom Croft (55 minutes) and Julian

White (65 minutes) joined the game from the bench. Flood kicked a conversion.

Geordan Murphy gained his 61st cap as a late replacement in a 38-9 win over Italy which took  Ireland to the top of the table after two rounds. Martin Castrogiovanni started the game for Italy.

Benjamin Kayser earned his seventh cap for France as a 55th-minute replacement in the 22-13 victory over Scotland in Paris on Saturday.

Greig Tonks and Will Hurrell, meanwhile, both played the full game as England made it two wins out of two in the RBS Under-20 6 Nations campaign with a 28-16 victory over Wales at Bridgend on Friday.

Scrum-half Sam Harrison provided Leicester with a third player in the England 22, joining the national set-up when Ben Youngs was recalled to the senior squad for the Guinness Premiership trip to Wasps.
