Watch the Match Highlights from the Gallagher Premiership game between Newcastle Falcons and Leicester Tigers.

Tigers secured a 27-5 away win over Falcons on Saturday in Round 25 of the Gallagher Premiership season.

In the last away trip of the regular season, and a first on Tyneside in the league since April 2019, Tigers passed 1,000 points scored for the campaign when Nemani Nadolo scored in the opening quarter of an hour.

But the conversion and a penalty from George Ford were the only additions to the score as Tigers led 10-0 at the break and Falcons were first out of the blocks after the restart with a try from hooker George McGuigan.

After dominating possession for most of the game, Tigers finally pulled clear after a penalty from Ford as he converted further scores from Guy Porter and Freddie Steward.
