Leicester leave it late to secure opening bonus-point victory over Brive
A cagey start saw the teams tied at six points apiece before Tom Youngs crossed for the first try in the 32nd minute.
Tigers led 14-6 at the break and it remained tight until Ben Youngs scored the second try in the 64th minute. Wesley Douglas closed the gap with the French side’s first try but late scores from Cyle Brink and Nemani Nadolo finished off a 39-17 victory.
Cardiff fly-half Jarrod Evans kicked 16 points in their 33-20 win against Newcastle.
Falcons were ahead at half-time thanks to converted tries from George Wacokecoke and Sam Stuart.
Benetton secured a first win over Stade Francais with a convincing 44-20 victory at the Stade Jean Bouin.
It was 25-8 at half-time, and both teams were then reduced to 14 men at the start of the second half when Stade Francais flanker Charlie Rorke and Benetton wing Sarto were shown red cards following an altercation.
Tommy Allan crossed for Benetton and then converted his own score to extend the lead to 32-8 and, although the French outfit closed the gap, a comeback was never on the cards.
