Leicester 33 - 6 Aironi: Unconvincing Leicester fade out of Europe with flattering win

Leicester 33, Aironi 6: Leicester’s disappointing European campaign came to an end with a comfortable but far-from-convincing 33-6 win over a battling Aironi at Welford Road.

Clermont’s narrow home win over Ulster ensured the Tigers finished in third place in Pool 4.

The Tigers had plenty of possession but, without half-backs Toby Flood and Ben Youngs and centre Manu Tuilagi, they led only 9-6 at the end of a desperately poor first half.

With wind advantage in the second half the Tigers upped their game, scoring four tries to ensure Aironi finished pointless in the group, having conceded a massive 274 points in their six pool games.
