Hooker Ed Shervington and replacement Dan Young were among the scorers as Worcester Cavaliers lost 43-14 to Leicester Tigers in the Aviva Premiership A League at Welford Road on Monday evening.
Kieran Brookes opened the scoring for the hosts before Shervington pushed his claims for a call-up to the senior team with a well worked score down the left after forward pressure from the Cavaliers. Joe Carlisle levelled the scores after quarter of an hour.
The visiting pack went close on several occasions against a well drilled home pack before Leicester regained the lead when Lucas Guillame pushed his way over. Henry Purdy then sent Tigers further ahead just before the break with a superb finish.
Mathew Tait marked his return to action after a lengthy spell out with a try early in the second half before Cavaliers responded again as they kept possession through a number of phases close to the Tigers tryline before Young stepped inside the covering defence to score under the posts. Carlisle added the extras as the visitors trailed 22-14.
Purdy secured the game as he finished a sweeping move before Lewington and Williams scored late tries to complete a home victory.
