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.
