Tuilagi brace helps Tigers to five-try triumph
Leicester Tigers 34 Worcester Warriors 26
England centre Manu Tuilagi ran in two tries in the opening 12 minutes as Leicester Tigers beat Worcester Warriors at Welford Road.
The five-try showing, which included a penalty try and further scores from Graham Kitchener and the sensational Vereniki Goneva, means Tigers have earned a maximum 10 points from their opening two Aviva Premiership fixtures.
Tougher tests await over the next fortnight with 2010 champions Saracens at Wembley and reigning champions Harlequins at home.

But Richard Cockerill's side can be satisfied with running in 10 tries and scoring 72 points from their first two fixtures.
"It was a perfect start for us if you look at the table - but it
was a far from perfect performance against Worcester," said Cockerill.
"We did some really good things and we are creating a lot of
opportunities but we need to finish more of them."
