Match Highlights: Tigers return to winning ways

Figure image

Geordan Murphy's men ended a five-game losing streak with a gutsy win over Wasps in front of more than 25,000 fans at Welford Road in Round 15 of this season's Gallagher Premiership, despite losing three players to concussion in the first half and being forced to play back-rower Will Evans on the wing and fullback Jonah Holmes at scrum-half.

Wasps took a five-point, 9-14 lead in to the half-time break but the home side fought back with the help of a passionate Tigers crowd to keep the visitors scoreless in the second-half and record a 19-14 victory.

Fly-half Joe Ford, who scored all 19 points for Tigers, was voted LeoVegas Fans' Favourite after his dominant display in the No.10 shirt in the absence of an unrecognised scrum-half for the entire second-half and a try, conversion and four penalties to his name.
