Tigers secure impressive away win

Leicester secured an emphatic 36-8 victory over Northampton at Franklin's Gardens on Saturday.

In truth, the Tigers were in control throughout this Aviva Premiership game, with Manu Tuilagi scoring two tries and Niall Morris and Mathew Tait touching down in the final 10 minutes for the bonus point.

The visitors stopped Northampton's powerful pack and had the skill and nous, with Tuilagi unstoppable, to dominate in a performance that will have delighted director of rugby Richard Cockerill.

Stephen Myler kicked a penalty for the hosts and also crossed for a try in the second half.
