Flying Fijians fullback Kini Murimurivalu scored two tries this morning as defending champions Leicester Tigers claimed a last minute 29-28 win over Connacht in the Heineken Champions Cup.

A last-gasp try from Hosea Saumaki saw the Tigers come from 18 points behind to earn the win.

They have now won all of their first three games and have qualified for the last 16.

Meanwhile, Semi Radradra's Bristol Bears are also through to the last 16 after beating Stade Francais 28-17.

In the European Challenge Cup this morning, Jiuta Wainiqolo started on the wing as Toulon beat Worcester Warriors 34-23.
