Cup games are great for younger players – Leicester Tigers' Forsyth
Leicester Tigers centre Andy Forsyth believes his side must hunt a bonus-point victory if they are to make the LV= Cup semi-finals.
Tigers travel to Llanelli Scalets tomorrow for their final group game knowing that even a win could see them fail to qualify from the group stages.
They currently lie second in their pool on nine points – one point behind Sale Sharks.
So, the 22-year-old believes Tigers have to go out all guns blazing.

"I think we have got to look to get five points," said Forsyth.
"We've got to go and get the win first, and then if we can do that, then we can push on for that fifth point.
"We will go into the game knowing what we need to get out of it, but during this week, we are just training on how we want to play and we will just take that into the game and see where it goes from there."
Forsyth has appeared in all three of Tigers LV= Cup fixtures so far and he sees the competition as a great stepping stone for the younger Tigers players.
"It's really good for us young lads because we are getting first-team games and there is the experience of the older lads and the mix with the younger lads all playing together, so it's a good laugh," he said.
"But it's serious as well. It is a development in a way, but everyone knows it's a real tough game. There were 19,000 people at Welford Road last weekend (for their LV= Cup victory over Wasps) and it's awesome for the young lads to play in front of that."
Despite his LV= Cup appearances, Forsyth has been playing most of his rugby for Nottingham in the Championship due to a link-up that allows players to be registered, and play, for both sides.
"I have been there for the last six weeks," said Forsyth.
"It has helped me quite a lot – just getting used to playing, keeping fitness up, and sharpening my match awareness."
