Tigers new flying Fijian Vereniki Goneva had a home debut to remember grabbing a brace of tries against local rivals Nottingham as Tigers romped to a ten-try 64-7 win. Opposite winger Scotty Hamilton also bagged a brace, whilst Alex Lewington also chipped in with a try to round off a prolific day for the Welford Wingers!
Both Goneva and Hamilton had potential hat trick scores ruled out, with Goneva also providing the scoring pass for try number 7, scored by Tony Allen.
Tigers other scores came from backrow trio JC, on his first Welford Road appearance for over a year, Richard "Thorpedo" Thorpe, also a home debutant, and Thomas "The Tank" Waldrom.
Nottingham started with 6 ex-Tigers and their score was by one of that number Matt Parr from a charged down Micky Young kick.
