Tom Varndell late winning try for Leicester gets them into the Semis

Tom Varndell late winning try for Leicester gets them into the Semis

Last weekend saw Leicester Tigers keep their Guinness Premiership title hopes alive with a dramatic 31-28 bonus point victory over Harlequins at Welford Road.

Leicester secured their place in the play-offs with a bonus-point win after winger Tom Varndell scored with just two minutes remaining, which settled the game and also ended Harlequins' own play-off hopes.

The flying winger made a try out of nothing, chipping the ball past Quins full-back Mike Brown before putting on the afterburners and winning the chase to the ball from 40 metres out.

Sale's defeat at home to London Irish saw the Tigers clinch fourth spot and set up a semi-final clash with table-toppers Gloucester.
