Leicester decimate the Titans

The Tigers ran in a massive 11 tries to record their biggest-ever win in the Zurich Premiership, as the Titans were handed yet another humiliating defeat, with the visitors still unable to record a victory this season after 20 matches.

The hosts had the game wrapped up well before the half-time break, securing the four-try bonus point within 21 minutes of play through tries from hooker George Chuter, who scored a hat-trick, Goode, who collected two tries, and veteran flanker Neil Back.

The Tigers went into the break with a massive 54-8 advantage – the biggest ever half-time score in Premiership history – after running in a total of eight tries to the Titans' one before the half-time whistle was sounded.

But the Titans' problems soon got worse after the break, when backs Giscard Pieters and Mike Umaga were yellow-carded, leaving the visitors with 14 men for close on 20 minutes.

Leicester's emphatic victory – their 10th of the season – also helped the Tigers' hopes of a Wild Card qualification into the 2004/05 Heineken Cup.
