Voting is now open for April's Topps Tiles Try-Umph of the Month.

The Leicester Tigers men's squad began the month with a quarter-final defeat away to Heineken Champions Cup finalists Leinster, before a big win at Mattioli Woods Welford Road in Round 22 of the Gallagher Premiership against Exeter Chiefs. The team finished the month with the derby double-header against Northampton Saints, the two sides winning a game apiece. 

The Topps Tiles Try-Umph of the Month offers supporters the chance to vote for their favourite score from a shortlist of three tries and hear from the winning player in an exclusive chat on LTTV, thanks to Main Partner Topps Tiles.

The Shortlist

Anthony Watson v Leinster

Not content with the trip over to Dublin itself, the wing decided to take flight for an acrobatic finish to Tigers’ first try of this Heineken Champions Cup quarter-final. With Dan Cole and Hanro Liebenberg setting the table with hard carries, Jack van Poortvliet spotted Watson with an inch of space and fired the ball wide with a miss-pass, allowing the England international to dive over.

Chris Ashton v Exeter Chiefs

The right man at the right moment, this was an unforgettable score. This try begins with flair from a most unexpected source, as Julián Montoya sells a huge dummy, looking to pop the ball back only to turn and make a strong five metres. Van Poortvliet then sends Kelly crashing in before a miss-pass to. Pollard frees space wide. The fly-half executes the two-on-one to perfection going wide to, who else, Chris Ashton, the wing touching down for his 100th try in Premiership Rugby.

Phil Cokanasiga v Northampton Saints

A real showcase for the squad, this slick move involves a host of names. It all starts with the returning Nic Dolly, who made his first start for the club in over a year, the hooker taking the ball right to the gain line before flicking it back to Atkinson. The fly-half, sensing a rush defence pulls it back immediately to centre Joe Woodward, who cannily dummies the pass to Cokanasiga to open up space in behind for a grubber through, which his centre-partner duly collects and dots down.
