European Rugby Challenge Cup newcomers Leicester Tigers made up half of England’s six try-scorers as they became the first country to qualify for the 2019 Rugby World Cup quarter-finals at the weekend.
Wing Jonny May and scrum-half Ben Youngs touched down in the first half of the 39-10 win over Argentina in Tokyo, before fly-half George Ford sped over the whitewash soon after the break.
Ford has now been directly involved in six tries at the Rugby World Cup, more than any other player, scoring two and providing a tournament-high four assists.
All three are set to line up for the Tigers’ maiden Challenge Cup campaign in Pool 5 alongside Cardiff Blues, Pau and Rugby Calvisano.
Tigers stalwart Youngs has yet to play in the competition, but Ford and May have appeared before, the former for Bath Rugby and the latter for Gloucester Rugby.
