Leicester 34-14 Bath: Tigers bounce back with crucial win at Welford Road

  • Owen Williams kicked 17 points as Leicester Tigers overcame Bath 34-14 at Welford Road
  • The Tigers led 14-7 at the break
  • Tries from Tom Youngs and Ed Slater secured the win after the restart
Leicester Tigers recorded a first Aviva Premiership win of the season at Welford Road as they condemned Bath to a first defeat of the season in style on Sunday.

The Tigers were in command for the majority of the match, and never lost hold of the lead they took in the opening five minutes. Richard Cockerill’s side were rarely troubled by an underwhelming Bath side, who suffered their heaviest Premiership defeat since December 2012.

Full report to follow.
