A dominant first-half display has helped Leicester Tigers secure a 21-9 victory at Exeter Chiefs in the Aviva Premiership.

The visitors led 15-0 at the interval following tries from Ben Youngs and Niki Goneva.

Exeter were more resilient after the break, but three Gareth Steenson penalties were not enough to worry Leicester, who kept the scoreboard ticking over with two penalties from Toby Flood.

Flood's boot contributed 11 points in total, having made another penalty goal in the first half, as well as converting Goneva's try.

The result sees the Tigers climb to third, while the Chiefs stay seventh.
