Leicester Tigers tackled their way to a three-point, 22-25, win over London Irish in Round 18 of the 2022/23 Gallagher Premiership season.
In a match that saw the lead change hands five times, Leicester scored three tries on their way to victory - a second successive for Tigers in the league after last weekend's win over Saracens at Mattioli Woods Welford Road.
Tigers trailed at half-time, an opening forty minutes that included two denied scores for the visitors and a spell with 14 men after a Harry Potter yellow card, but fought their way back to the front on the scoreboard and held on in the dying stages to overcome an Irish fightback.
The visitors finished the game with just over 40% of possession and having made almost 200 tackles, 60 more than The Exiles in a bruising, entertaining encounter in West London.
