Tigers set-up Paralympic final with Team GB

With four Leicester Tigers representing Team GB at this year's Paralympics, the side have reached their first Paralympic final with a thrilling 55-49 semi-final win over hosts Japan.

The Tigers quartet Gavin Walker, Jamie Stead, Jack Smith and Nick Cummins will face the USA, who they lost to 50-48 in the pool stages, in Sunday's final (10:00 BST).

The Americans secured their final spot with a 49-42 victory over reigning champions Australia.

Team GB have felt defeat just once so far having progressed from Pool B and are now guaranteed at least a Silver medal.
