Middlesex Sevens update

Figure image
A young Leicester Tigers side failed to make it through to the knockout stages of the Middlesex Sevens at Twickenham on Saturday.

Tigers were beaten 24-7 by Newcastle Falcons in their opening game. Alex Lewington scored the Tigers' try, converted by George Ford, but a 19-0 deficit at half-time proved too difficult to overcome.

In the second fixture against Sale Sharks, Tigers were pipped 24-19 in extra time. Joe Cobden scored three tries, with Ford adding the rest of the points as the game finished level at 19-19 at full-time before the sudden death extra period.
