Leicester Tigers and Munster played out an enthralling last 10 minutes in Welford Road this evening. The two giants of European Rugby locked horns for the second time in a week. The English outfit had a point to prove after failing to register a single score in a 38-0 drubbing in Limerick last week.

The 14 men of Munster dug deep to take a one point lead late on, but cometh the hour, cometh the man.

The Tigers won a penalty inside their own half, and while many expected Ben Youngs to elect to go for the corner, Owen Williams felt he had the range.

Here is is from another angle:

After Niall Scannell’s try in the last few minutes, it looked like Munster had sealed a famous victory, but the Premiership side didn’t go down without a fight, and showed why Leicester is such a notoriously difficult place to travel to.
