Tiger Cubs down Leinster 18-16

Tigers' academy starlets survived a late Leinster onslaught to win 18-16.  Leinster scored a last gasp try but missed the leveling conversion.

Tigers tries came from Wrexham winger Rhys Williams and Old Millfieldian full back Tom Bellak.  Redruth's Ollie Bryant at fly half contributed the other 8 points from his boot.

Tigers side was:
O Tom Bellak
N Luke Jones
M Henry Purdy
L Pasqualle Dunn
K Rhys Williams
J Oli Bryant
I Scott Steele
A Riccardo Brugnara
B Jamal Ford-Robinson
C Tiziano Pasquali
D Jake Albon (c)
E Ryan Mason
F Joe Cousens
H Will Owen
G Oliver Povoas
Harry Thacker
James Thraves
Jake Farnworth
Harrison Lee-Everton

It is worth noting Joe Cousens and Jake Albon were reported to have left the academy previously.  It is unknown what their current status is. 
UPDATE: Joe Cousens will spend a year in Brazil working as a PRL community coach, he previously was expected to go to Cambridge but that is now on hold.
