Leicester lash Perpignan

A 23-point effort by Toby Flood ensured Leicester secured a 38-27 bonus point victory over Perpignan.

The result sees Heyneke Meyer’s team moving to the top of Pool Three. Flood scored the first of four tries with former All Blacks centre Aaron Mauger, Jordan Crane and Matt Smith scoring the rest.

Philip Burger’s Perpignan are yet to welcome Dan Carter to their playing ranks, and are lacking a quality flyhalf with Nicholas Laharrague and Steve Meyer both on the injured list.
