Last chance to vote for Topps Tiles try-Umph

Figure image

Voting is open until midnight on Monday (January 17) to find the latest Topps Tiles Try-Umph of the Month from the Leicester Tigers action during December.

Tigers were unbeaten during the month, with Gallagher Premiership victories over Harlequins and Bristol Bears alongside Heineken Champions Cup triumphs over Bordeaux-Begles and Connacht.

Throughout the season, we ask supporters to vote for their top pick in conjunction with club main partners Topps Tiles and every voter is also included in a draw to win a Tigers shirt signed by the winning player who will be revealed on LTTV

Shortlist for the Topps Tiles Try-Umph of the Month for December:

Harry Potter (v Harlequins, Gallagher Premiership)

In a game settled by fine margins, George Ford and Ben Youngs provided the inspiration for a valuable score by Potter, combining on the left wing where scrum-half Youngs threads a chip kick towards the tryline and Potter anticipates it and races on to claim the ball and dot down.

Hosea Saumaki (v Connacht, Heineken Champions Cup)

Following up on his hat-trick in the Premiership Cup, Tonga international wing Saumaki claimed his first European try in the win over Connacht. It began with a lineout on the left, and when the Tigers maul stops five metres out, Ben Youngs quickly plays to the right and Saumaki shows his pace through a gap on a diagonal run to the tryline.

Guy Porter (v Bristol Bears, Gallagher Premiership)

With the clock beyond 80 minutes and Tigers trailing, they build pressure on rivals Bristol until eventually George Ford senses strength of support on the right, Freddie Steward keeps the ball alive through a tackle and Nic Dolly brings the last defender into him before a pass to the right where Guy Porter runs in to score the winning points and spark the celebrations.
