Ford on target in Tigers win

Leicester continued their relentless charge towards an Aviva Premiership play-off place with a 28-12 win against London Welsh thanks largely to the goal-kicking of departing fly-half George Ford.

Publicly criticised for his decision to depart Welford Road this summer, Ford produced a near-faultless display in the absence of England international Toby Flood with 13 points.

Adam Thompstone scored a first-half try, with Niall Morris and Dan Bowden touching down for the Tigers after the break, while Gordon Ross scored 12 points for the Exiles.
