Leicester Tigers ran out 34-26 winners over Worcester at Welford Road on Saturday.

Here is how the game unfolded minute-by-minute.

1 min: TRY (7-0) Manu Tuilagi makes a stunning start to the game as he crosses the line after just 100 seconds. The move starts on Leicester's 22 and involves seven different pairs of hands in the build-up. Try converted by Flood

4 mins: PENALTY (7-3) Andy Goode gets Worcester on the board almost straight from the re-start.

11 mins: TRY (14-3) Tuilagi goes over for his second try, but the score is created by a scintillating run by Vereniki Goneva, who slips through five tackles in a crowd- pleasing 40-metre run. Try converted by Flood.

15 mins: PENALTY (14-6) Goode narrows the gap.

17 mins: PENALTY (17-6) Flood makes the difference 11 points again.

28 mins: PENALTY (17-9) Goode is accurate again as Worcester really get into the game.

41 mins: TRY (22-9) Goneva goes over from close range as he barges through two tacklers at the end of several phases. The move makes serious ground when Flood's fizzing pass sends Scott Hamilton into space on half-way. Flood misses the conversion.

48 mins: TRY (22-16) David Lemi scores a spectacular try to open Worcester's account as he takes Josh Matavesi's back-handed offload on half-way and out-paces Flood and Goneva, who both gave chase. Goode's conversion means there are only six points in it.

65 mins: TRY (29-16) A penalty try is awarded after Tigers go for the jugular and surprisingly turn down an easy three points to go for a bonus-point fourth try. Their scrum puts in an almighty effort against a Worcester scrum that had held its own all afternoon and referee Andrew Small goes under the posts as the visitors pop up near the line. Flood converts.

71 mins: PENALTY (29-19) Goode gives Worcester hope of a bonus point with a penalty that cuts the gap to 10.

73 mins: TRY (34-19) Lock Graham Kitchener scores against his former club with a powerful run after taking the ball at pace down the left-hand side. It kills the game as a contest. Ford misses a difficult conversion after replacing Flood.

80 mins: TRY (34-26) Centre Alex Grove gets on the end of Goode's perfectly-weighted delicate chip kick and dives over the line to score the Warriors' second try. Goode rapidly drop-kicks the conversion in a bid to re-start the game and go hunting a bonus point – but it's too late.
