England scrum-half Danny Care produced a moment of magic as Harlequins regained top spot in the Aviva Premiership following a hard-fought 25-21 win over Leicester at The Stoop.

Trailing at the break, Care ran half the length of the field from a tap penalty to reignite Quins, with the mercurial Ben Botica adding 20 points from the boot in an impressive kicking performance as Leicester crumbled.

Toby Flood scored 16 points for the Tigers on his return to Premiership action, with Adam Thompstone crossing for a try - but it was not enough.
