Bath have recorded a close 27-26 win over Leicester Tigers in the Aviva Premiership this afternoon.

The visitors took a slender lead at half time, with tries from Ben Youngs and Tom Croft helping them to a 20-19 advantage.

Penalties allowed Tigers to extend their lead after the break, as Toby Flood added his third and fourth of the game, while Bath relied on tries.
