Tigers secure Heineken Cup quarter-final spot

Figure image
Leicester Tigers' 34-19 victory over Benetton Treviso, coupled with results elsewhere in Round Five, guaranteed Leicester Tigers a place in the quarter-finals of this season's Heineken Cup.

Tigers fought back to take a bonus-point victory from Stadio di Monigo. Julian Salvi, Miles Benjamin (2) and a penalty score secured the maximum points that keep Tigers in the hunt for the top spot in Pool 5 and set up a winner-takes-all clash with Ulster Rugby at Welford Road next Saturday.

Toulon’s 43-20 victory over Cardiff Blues in Nice means that Tigers are guaranteed at least one of the two best-placed runners-up spots and a quarter-final place.
