Will we ever tire of seeing re-runs of Olli Thorley's wondrous try which finally tamed Tigers?

We don't often get one over on Leicester, but to do so in such style was tremendous, and surely Glaws will now kick on with confidence.

Thorley, of course, was only in the side because Charlie Sharples was injured.

We were 29-13 up but taking some pressure when Ben Morgan made a quick break from almost on his own line and when he fed Thorley the winger had some 80 metres to run.

He did so with such style even the Tigers supporters applauded.

It has to be said that our visitors had more players away on international duty than we did (not difficult for some unfathomable reason). However, the 36-13 five try win was done in such style it's doubtful whether even Sarries or the Chiefs could have dealt with us on the night

We get a chance to prove that point this Saturday when we travel to Chiefs in the Premiership - will Thorley start?
