First time for everything

Leicester 44 - 16 Gloucester

There aren't many firsts left for this generation of Leicester rugby players but this was a trophy that has escaped their grasp since its inauguration. After coming close the last couple of years, being smashed by Sale and Wasps in successive seasons they finally broke their curse by thumping Gloucester in Twickenham earlier today. In a decidedly one sided affair Leicester dominated throughout, Gloucester had no answer for their combination of pace and power. Those two beasts Leicester keep on their wings were on fire, Tuilagi netting two of the Tigers' 7 tries. That's al I have to say on this cos... ni maith liom an chumainn Sasanna

Leicester are still on course for a treble, and go into the Heineken cup final against Wasps next weekend full of confidence
