Leicester Tigers ended Leinster's hopes of advancing to the European Cup quarter-finals on Saturday with a convincing 25-9 win over Brian O'Driscoll's side at Welford Road. The Tigers were eliminated from the knock-out stage already last week.
The visitors held an early 6-3 lead after Felipe Contepomi slotted two penalties to one from Andy Goode, but the Tigers then raced ahead with tries from Brett Deacon and Seru Rabeni to make it 15-6.
Despite then being reduced to 13 men with Julian White and Goode sin-binned, the hosts held out until the break.
Contepomi narrowed the gap to six early in the second period, but Goode soon restored the nine-point cushion with his second penalty of the game; and the Tigers had the last word when flank Ben Herring went over for their third try. Goode's conversion finished the scoring.
