Leicester’s 34-16 Premiership victory over Gloucester wasn’t without controversy, with the TMO ruling out a try to Jordan Olowofela in the closing stages to the disapproval of commentator Austin Healey.

The 20-year-old speedster received a cutout ball from Kyle Eastmond and appeared to dot down in the corner and finish a spectacular try in the 76th minute, capping the match.


Upon review, the TMO ruled Olowofela had lost control of the ball, to which former Leicester utility Healey said “that is rubbish, utter rubbish.” Fans around the ground looked to share Healey’s disbelief at the decision.

Despite Olowofela’s try being ruled out, Leicester still cruised to victory, with former Gloucester winger Jonny May scoring a try on either side of halftime to help the side secure a second consecutive home victory.

May’s try total for the season is now nine, which sees him level as the league’s top try scorer.

Jonah Holmes and George Ford also crossed for Leicester in the bonus-point victory, with a no-look pass from Wallabies midfielder Matt Toomua sending Holmes away just after the break.

Flanker Gareth Evans scored Gloucester’s lone try as they slipped to fourth place in the Premiership.

Leicester’s victory sees them sit sixth with five wins and seven losses.
