Tigers On Tour | Leicester quartet wrap-up summer Tests

Your weekly wrap-up of Leicester Tigers squad members off-season activities, on and off the pitch, ahead of a return to training for the 2021/22 campaign...

Kini Murimurivalu and Nemani Nadolo lined-up against the All Blacks for a second successive weekend, in New Zealand on Saturday, after the Fiji side pushed the hosts all the way in the first of their two-Test series.

However, it was the All Blacks who stole the headlines from the second match in Hamilton as they ran out 60-13 winners.

The Pacific Islanders were in the mix for almost half an hour at Stadium Waikato before the class and experience on the international stage shone through for New Zealand, who raced away to record the 47-point victory.

Later on Saturday afternoon, Leicester fans tuned in to see another Tigers pair running around for their home nation when Wales welcomed Argentina to the Millennium Stadium for the second fixture of their series.

After recording a 20-all draw in the first match, it was the Argentine's who came away victorious from the re-match as they ran out 33-11 winners.

Julián Montoya, leading Los Pumas for the third time since being appointed his nation's skipper ahead of the tour, was once again a force up front for the South Americans and showed the way in attack and defence.

Moroni, who started the match on the wing, crossed a try in what doubled as the Tigers outside-back's 50th Test appearance for Argentina.
