Tigers pair up for Try of the Week

Leicester Tigers duo Jonah Holmes and Noel Reid have both been shortlisted for Premiership Rugby’s Try of the Week for their scores in the Derby Day clash at Welford Road.

Tigers put four tries – including a Holmes double – past Northampton Saints in Round 4 of the Premiership Rugby Cup on Saturday.

Both players were involved in the Wales international’s first score, which saw Reid gather his own chip and chase over the top of the Saints defence, before feeding his wing with a long, looping pass to the left where Holmes still had to beat two more defenders.

Reid was the recipient of a neat backs move for his own try, with Kyle Eastmond putting a ball out the back for centre partner Andy Forsyth, who offloaded in the tackle to put the Dubliner in for his debut score in Tigers colours.

Supporters can choose their favourite score, from a shortlist that also includes tries from Saracens’ Ben Spencer, Gloucester’s Jacob Morris and Tom Collins of Northampton Saints, on the Premiership Rugby website. Voting closes at midnight this Wednesday, October 16.
