Watch the Match Highlights from the Gallagher Premiership semi-final between Leicester Tigers and Northampton Saints at Mattioli Woods Welford Road.

Tigers booked a place in the Final with a 27-14 victory over Saints on Saturday.

In the 249th East Midlands derby, played in front of a semi-final club record crowd of more than 22,000 at Mattioli Woods Welford Road, Tigers made progress and will meet Saracens in the season’s climax at Twickenham next Saturday.

The teams were locked at 6-6 after a tense first half before Saints went in front grabbed the first try of the afternoon after the restart through Tommy Freeman.

George Ford engineered a superb try in reply and then provided the scoring pass for Freddie Steward as Tigers led 21-14.

There was still little breathing room, though Ford’s late snapshot drop goal pushed the lead finally into double figures and the fly-half, in his last appearance at the stadium as a Tigers player, added a final kick to make sure of the result.
