Former Wymondham player Tom Armes was part of a historic Leicester Tigers win on Friday night.

An inexperienced Tigers side produced one of the great results in tour history by beating world champions South Africa 22-17 in front of a record crowd at Welford Road.

Ben Youngs, formerly of North Walsham played a starring role for Tigers.

A Tigers XV shorn of five England players and eight others through injury and unavailability opened up a surprise 16-8 lead in the first half on the back of sure kicking from scrum-half Youngs, and a superb try from Argentina winger Lucas Amorosino.

They then held firm to complete a famous win. Youngs ended a memorable match with 17 points to his name after converting Amorosino's try and slotting over five penalties.
