Watch the Match Highlights from the Gallagher Premiership game between Leicester Tigers and Newcastle Falcons at Mattioli Woods Welford Road in Round 15 of the 2020/21 season.

Tigers recorded an eighth win of the Premiership season with the 26-12 triumph over Newcastle on Sunday.

The Tigers put 16 unanswered points on the board in the first half of the Round 15 contest, with a try from Hanro Liebenberg and the kicking of fly-half George Ford, who was making just his second Premiership appearance of the season.

Ford and England colleague Ellis Genge were pushed straight into the starting team after their return from the Six Nations, with new England cap George Martin among the Tigers replacements.

But the hosts struggled to build a platform for further scores in the second half, conceding a try and also two yellow cards in defence, before a forward drive provided the second try for Charlie Clare in the closing stages.
