The Spire award is voted for by supporters using the Tigers official club app throughout the second half of home games, with the winner announced at the full-time whistle. This week, the club also ran a competition for season ticket holders to win the chance to hand over the bottle of champagne to the winner in the tunnel immediately after the game.
Tigers prop Genge topped the poll ahead of Valentino Mapapalangi and Gareth Owen as he scored one of the tries in a bonus-point win over Sale Sharks.
As well as presenting the champagne, season ticket holder Debi, from Oadby, also enjoyed VIP matchday hospitality in the Honours Suite with the Tigers as part of her prize.
Voting for the Spire Man of the Match will be open again for the home game against Worcester Warriors this Saturday (3.00pm). Download the Tigers app now to find out how you can play your part.
