Bath climb to sixth in the Aviva Premiership table with a narrow 27-26 win over Leicester Tigers.

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.

The home side struggled with their kicking game, with Tom Heathcote, Ollie Devoto and Stephen McDonald all missing efforts, but Francois Louw crossed the try line inside the last 10 minutes to edge Bath ahead.

The result leaves Leicester second in the table, while Bath climb to sixth.
