Leicester Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill has claimed that his side are in a good position following their victory over London Wasps in the Aviva Premiership.

The Tigers ran out 35-16 winners at Welford Road on Sunday to guarantee themselves a place in the end-of-season playoffs.

"There was a danger we would be flat after the last couple of weeks but it was job done, five points," Cockerill told Sky Sports News.

"We have guaranteed ourselves a top-four spot and one win out of two will give us a home semi, so we are exactly where we need to be."

Leicester return to league action on Saturday when they make the trip to Bath.
