Worth savours Anglo-Welsh Cup run

George Worth is savouring his first taste of knockout rugby after scoring a crucial try to help Leicester Tigers reach the Anglo-Welsh Cup Final.

Worth has enjoyed a breakthrough campaign with Tigers and scored his first try for the senior side on his 12th appearance of the season.
The try was the first of four for Tigers in Saturday’s 32-10 semi-final victory over Saracens at Allianz Park, and Worth said he is relishing being involved in the cup run.
“I loved every second of the semi-final,” he said. “It was great fun.
“It’s my first taste of knockout rugby. I am enjoying it while I am there and making the most of it.”
Worth’s try was created by teammates Freddie Burns and Tom Brady, and it took a touch off his legs to set the ball up for his finish. Worth joked afterwards that the control was similar to that of Steven Gerrard, the former Liverpool and England footballer.
“It was a great feeling to score,” he said. “I didn’t have to do much. We had advantage, Freddie kicked it and Brady did well to get the slap down. I’m saying it was a good touch to control the ball and then I fell on it.
“Who would I say it was like? It was probably Stevie G.”
Tigers take on Exeter Chiefs in the final on Sunday at the Twickenham Stoop. The club has an allocation of tickets priced £30 adults, £15 juniors in the central sections of the DHL Stand and in the IG Stand at The Stoop, and £20 adults, £10 juniors in the outer sections of the DHL Stand.
