    A great tussle in the snow at Welford Road last night.

    Well done Tigers. Great defence and determination carried the day.

    But you got to admit, it takes a different type of person to play in those conditions.

    The game at Biarritz on Friday night also looked like the ’95 RWC semi-final in Deben.
