Watch the Match Highlights from the Leicester Tigers away win over Bath Rugby in Round 17 of the 21/22 Gallagher Premiership season.

Tigers beat Bath Rugby 24-20 at The Recreation Ground on Saturday.

After defeat on their last nine visits to The Rec in Premiership rugby since a 37-6 victory in March 2011, Tigers had to be patient before Freddie Burns scored a decisive try in the second half.

It had been a free-scoring opening, as Tigers claimed tries through Jasper Wiese and Richard Wigglesworth, with Bath squeezing one in from wing Will Muir, to lead 14-5 after just 12 minutes.

But Bath then enjoyed a run of 15 unanswered points as Max Ojomoh and Josh Bayliss ran in two more tries on the way to a 20-14 lead at half-time.

Top-of-the-table Tigers, though, following a 40-23 win at Mattioli Woods Welford Road in Round 8, stayed in the game and responded with a converted score from Burns and then a Bryce Hegarty penalty before the forwards pinned Bath back in the closing minutes.
