  • FULL-TIME: LEICESTER TIGERS 41-32 MONTPELLIER

  • DROP-GOAL, LAMB, LEICESTER! Disaster for the visitors, though, as Nagusa spills the restart. The ball squirts out on the home side, and substitute Ryan Lamb sends a scruffy-looking drop-goal cruelly denying Montpellier a bonus point with the final kick of the match. What a game, and a great result for Leicester Tigers.

    80
  • CONVERSION, TRINH-DUC, MONTPELLIER! Well, well, well. The fly-half lands the kick, and Montpellier in the last minute of the match must score a converted try to win. As it stands, they have two bonus points.

    80
  • TRY, BERARD, MONTPELLIER! And they have their bonus point! A second for the visiting side. Crucial kick for Trinh-Duc now.

    79
  • The visitors have possession back and are attacking inside Liecester territory. Another try would secure them a bonus point.

    78
  • Into the final four minutes here with Montpellier defending a lineout on halfway.

    76
  • PENALTY, FLOOD, LEICESTER! Tigers win a penalty on the 10m line thanks to Ed Slater's work at the breakdown, and Flood smashes it home.

    73
  • It's a forward pass to the winger, though, and the visitors are denied. Relief around Welford Road.

    70
  • Oh my, Nagusa may well have grabbed another one! We are checking the final pass with the TMO. Great stuff from the Fijian yet again, and that score - if confirmed - will get a try bonus for Montpellier.

    70
  • CONVERSION, PELISSIE, MONTPELLIER! Simple two points for the scrum-half.

    69
  • TRY, BERARD, MONTPELLIER! A great breakaway try from the visitors from absolutely nothing. Tigers lose the ball in the tackle, and Nagusa scoops up and storms away downfield. He draws the last man before releasing substitute Berard for a run-in under the posts.

    68
  • PENALTY, FLOOD, LEICESTER! The skipper knocks over another kick, and the Tigers are up by 17 points.

    66
  • The hosts win a penalty inside the Montpellier 22, and Flood goes for goal to extend the lead.

    65
  • Conversion wide from Flood. Tigers coming forward again with nice distribution from the backline winning a lineout in the Montpellier 22.

    64
  • TRY, GIBSON, LEICESTER! That's the bonus point and the result secure for the hosts. The scrum was messy, and it looked like the visitors had struck against the head. It came back for Waldrom at eight, though, who offloaded well and the ball found Gibson who dived over from point-blank range.

    62
  • The maul collapses, but the Tigers are awarded the scrum put-in.

    60
  • The Tigers have another penalty on halfway as substitute Thomas Waldrom forces Montpellier to hold on on the ground. Flood sticks it in the corner, and Leicester go for the bonus point.

    59
  • PENALTY, FLOOD, LEICESTER! No trouble for Flood, and the gap is extended to nine points.

    57
  • After more turnovers in possession, the Tigers win a penalty 25 metres out, right of centre. Flood lines it up to take his side beyond a score ahead of Montpellier.

    56
  • Scrappy few minutes here as both sides knock-on and cough up possession. Tigers now attacking in the away 22, but spill the ball. Montpellier have the scrum on the 22m line.
