The early 1990s saw the emergence of Leicester's renowned ABC Club, so called because of the letters the front row players wore on their shirts; Graham Rowntree played loosehead and wore "A", hooker Richard Cockerill wore "B" and Darren Garforth played tighthead prop and wore "C". The trio started 166 games together between 1992 and 2002, Garforth and Rowntree started another 72 games together at prop, but with different hookers.
Leicester began one of the greatest winning streaks of any team. This streak started when a young pack helped Leicester to defeat Harlequins 23–16 in the 1993 cup final.
They were English champions again in 1995, beat Sale 9-3 in the 1997 Pilkington Cup Final and were the first English team to get to the Heineken Cup final before losing to Brive in the same year. In the 1996 cup final, Tigers lost to Bath (who was just finishing its own great domination of English rugby) after referee Steve Lander gave a contentious penalty try in the last minute which sealed their victory. After the match Neil Back pushed over Lander landing himself a six-month ban.
