Leicester Tigers come from behind to beat Exeter Chiefs 24-20 in the Aviva Premiership.

Leicester Tigers came from behind to clinch a narrow 24-20 win over Exeter Chiefs in the Aviva Premiership.

Exeter made a bright start as Dave Ewers found the line just 10 minutes in, while Haydn Thomas added a second for the Chiefs later in the half.

However, an Anthony Allen try, followed by two Freddie Burns penalties, kept Leicester in contention at half time.

Burns cut the deficit further for the visitors at the start of the second half with another penalty, leaving the Tigers just a point down, and Ben Youngs gave them the lead for the first time by diving over in the corner.

Gareth Steenson got Exeter within a point with 10 minutes to play, but Owen Williams split the uprights late on to put the win beyond doubt for Leicester.
