Ben Youngs says Leicester Tigers will return to Aviva Premiership action this weekend keen to bounce back from the disappointment of a first defeat of the season in their last league fixture.After winning the first three games of the season, Tigers were beaten at Exeter Chiefs in Round 4 and return to league duty this weekend on the back of successive wins in Europe.   “We’re really happy with 10 points from two games in Europe,” said scrum-half Youngs after the 36-3 win against Benetton Treviso in Italy on Saturday.   “It’s put us in a great position with the back-to-back games against Munster to come next month.   “But now we go back to domestic rugby and Bath at the weekend with some work to do after the disappointment of the defeat at Exeter in the last round." Reflecting on ther five-try win in Italy, Youngs added:  “It was tough in the rain and the wind. They’re a difficult team to play against and don’t always get the credit they deserve.   “But we still tried moved the ball around and we were looking for opportunities. You can see the growth in our game.   “We’re in a really good position at the moment, but there are still some areas we can work on.”   Tigers against Bath Rugby is a 3.00pm kick-off at Welford Road on Sunday.
