Richard Cockerill wants Leicester Tigers improvement despite win

Richard Cockerill says that Leicester Tigers must beat Montpellier in the Heineken Cup next week if they are to have a chance of topping the group.

Director of rugby Richard Cockerill has told his Leicester Tigers players that they must improve on their accuracy despite beating Montpellier on Sunday.

The Aviva Premiership champions ran in four tries as they claimed a 41-32 victory in the Heineken Cup at Welford Road to firm up their grip on second place in Pool 5.

"We wanted to play today and we took our opportunities to score those first three tries very well and then we had three or four more opportunities to score that we didn't take," Cockerill told reporters.

"There were probably five or six tries left out there from both sides. We need to be more accurate.

"We needed the five points and that was good for us. It keeps the pressure on Ulster but they're in the box seat. We've got to win next week at Montpellier really."

Leicester trail Ulster by two points in the group.
