Murimurivalu double in Tigers win – FBC News

Flying Fijians fullback Kini Murimurivalu scored a brace of tries this morning for Leicester Tigers in their 29-28 win over Irish club Connacht during their Champions Cup clash.

The Tigers scored a last-gasp try from Hosea Saumaki as they came from 18 points behind to earn a dramatic win that sees them qualify for the last 16.

Leicester prop Joe Heyes rumbled over from a powerful maul for the opening try in the third minute and seven minutes later the visitors put together a fine flowing move and wing Murimurivalu did not have to break stride to collect Freddie Burns’ cross-field kick before diving over in the corner.

Murimurivalu’s second try was in the 55th minute as he finished off a length-of-the-field move after Jesper Wiese had won the turnover deep in his own half.
