Tiger equalised with a try by winger Gareth Morley, but within four minutes the visitors had edged in front again when stand-off Mark Rea kicked a penalty.

Tigers turned round 12-8 ahead following a try in the 34th minute by full-back Jon Feeley, which Johnny West converted.

The hosts went further ahead within two minutes of the restart when winger Callum McKenzie sprinted over and although West missed the conversion he added a penalty six minutes later.

Morley ran in his second try, and with two minutes remaining replacement No 8 Frank Wragg touched down for a try which West converted. Virtually on the final whistle, stand-off West raced over and converted.
