Figure image

Watch the Match Highlights from Exeter Chiefs v Leicester Tigers in Round 1 of the 2022/23 Gallagher Premiership.

Tigers were denied an opening-day victory by a last-minute try from the Chiefs at Sandy Park on Saturday.

Tigers had fought their way back from 17-6 down at half-time to lead and had shut out their hosts for almost the entire 40 remaining minutes until Patrick Schickerling finally forced his way over the line for the decisive score and a 24-20 Chiefs win in Round 1 of the Gallagher Premiership season.

It denied Tigers a winning start and a hat-trick of opening-day wins after success in each of the last two years.

The weekend’s games were only confirmed on Friday afternoon following the passing of Her Majesty The Queen, and a period of silent tribute was observed ahead of kick-off, followed by singing of God Save The King and a prayer from the Exeter club chaplain.
