Twelvetrees stars for Tigers

Leicester fly-half Billy Twelvetrees scored all of his side's points as they continued their superb form with a convincing 29-11 win over lowly Wasps at Welford Road.

Twelvetrees, playing at fly-half for Tigers in place of the injured Toby Flood, pounced for two tries, five penalties and two conversions, as the home side overcame a sluggish start to run out comfortable winners in cold, blustery conditions.

Leicester, without Flood and fellow injured England players Manu Tuilagi and Louis Deacon, were never at their most fluent, particularly behind the scrum, but they were still too much for Wasps.

Nic Berry touched down for second-bottom Wasps, with Elliot Daly and Ryan Davis kicking the rest of their points.
