Moody enjoys try-scoring return for Tigers

Lewis Moody says it is an awesome feeling to score at Welford Road after he grabbed his second try of the season in Leicester Tigers' 39-6 Guinness Premiership win over Leeds Carnegie.

Moody, who was returning from international duty with England, swooped on a knock-on and ran in from halfway for the fifth and final try of Saturday's game.

It followed his match-winning try against Worcester Warriors in October, and Moody said: “It is awesome to score at Welford Road. That is two tries in six games and I am just loving every minute of it.

“I could hear Alesana (Tuilagi) calling and I was waiting for the cover defence to come across and I was going to float it out to him to run in but everyone sort of disappeared and I kept going.”

Moody added: “We said at the start of the week that it was a big month for us and we needed to start it with a good performance. I think we did that.

“We kept concentrating and kept the pressure on and it paid off and to score five tries is great.”
