Leicester Tigers confirmed that their impressive Champions Cup form was no flash in the pan as a 30-13 win over Newcastle Falcons sees them climb up to third place in the English Premiership.

This was a controlled display from Tigers as first-quarter tries from Telusa Veainu and Ben Youngs helped them to an interval lead. Johnny May put the result beyond doubt ten minutes from time, but all three tries were converted by George Ford, while he also added three penalties.

On Sunday, Welford Road will welcome Sale Sharks, who could have new signing Marlon Yarde in their arsenal after his move from Harlequins.

Across the English Channel, Castres got back to winning ways in some style with a 43-28 victory over Agen. Castres ran in six tries in total in this win, which sees them into ninth place in the standings.

Munster's rivals led by 14-9 at the interval thanks to tries from Armand Battle and Julien Dumora, while Anthony Jelonch added another two in the second half. An away trip to face Oyonnax could well see them claim a second win on the bounce.

Racing 92 had Virimi Vakatawa and Manuel Carizza sent off, but still managed to take a 29-12 win from a fiery encounter against Bordeaux. Despite Vakatawa's red after 30 minutes, Racing only trailed 8-7 at the interval, but two tries from Camile Chat and another from Edwin Maka helped them across the line.
