It was another stunning performance from Madden and it beggars belief why he has yet to taste international rugby at the highest level.
He was into everything - both in attack and defence where his Scarlet
teammates were simply outstanding.
When Jones added his magnificent seventh penalty, it was all but curtains for the Tigers.
