Stade Francais earned a bonus point win over Leicester Tigers to join them in the Champions Cup quarter-finals.

The Tigers, who finished top of Pool Four, secured a home tie in the last eight and will now have Stade join them as one of three best runners-up.

Manu Tuilagi, who made only his second start in 15 months, gave Leicester the lead with his try in the first half.

However the hosts ran in 26 unanswered points to earn the bonus point.

Dom Barrow and Harry Thacker secured tries giving hope to the Tigers but Stade added a late fifth through Geoffrey Doumayrou.

The Parisian side ended Leicester's unbeaten record in the competition this season.

Wasps secured a dramatic victory over struggling Worcester thanks to two tries in the final two minutes of today's game.

Warriors deservedly led at the break after a try from Vuna, but a 78th minute score from Halai put Wasps ahead in the match for the first time.

Straight from the restart, Tagicakibau's turnover touchdown not only earned Wasps a four-try bonus point, but it also denied Worcester a losing bonus point.

Wasps now move up to sixth in the table while Worcester remain in 10th.

Nathan Hughes extends Wasps contract

Future England back-row forward Nathan Hughes has extended his contract with Wasps.

The Fiji-born 24-year-old will qualify for England at the end of June and recently confirmed that he will make himself available for Test selection for head coach Eddie Jones.

Hughes rejected the advances of his native Fiji and sat out the 2015 Rugby World Cup in a bid to complete the three-year residency qualification period to be eligible to represent England.

Wasps have moved quickly to tie down the in-demand Hughes to a new deal fresh from securing an extended contract for club captain and England flanker James Haskell.

Ed Slater's hopes of being involved in England's RBS 6 Nations campaign have been dashed by a knee injury that has ruled him out for up to two months.

The Leicester captain, who can play in the second and back rows, sustained medial ligament damage when making a tackle during the first half of Saturday's Aviva Premiership defeat at Saracens.

While the Tigers are confident Slater will not need surgery, he will miss at least half of the Six Nations, and given his fringe positioning, the injury will deny him the opportunity to impress new England head coach Eddie Jones.
