Leicester Tigers secure spot in Heineken Champions Cup quarter-finals with victory over Edinburgh, thanks to Jasper Wiese’s incredible try!
Despite Emiliano Boffelli’s two penalties, the visitors were pummeled by Leicester’s relentless pressure on a rainy night at Mattioli Woods Welford Road. But it was replacement Jasper Wiese who stole the show, scoring the only try of the game with a bulldozing run.
The tense battle saw both teams struggle to find their footing, with Edinburgh momentarily turning the game around through two penalties. However, Leicester’s sixth successive win secured them a spot in the last-eight tie against Leinster or Ulster.
Handre Pollard kicked three penalties and a conversion, bringing the hosts’ tally to 16-6. Despite the game’s lacklustre spectacle, Leicester’s dominant performance is sure to impress fans and keep them at the top of the rankings.
