Tigers extend advantage

Leicester extended their lead at the top of the Aviva Premiership with a 27-16 win over Northampton in a pulsating encounter at Welford Road.

The game was in the balance until the final quarter but the Tigers pack were ultimately too strong as the Saints line-out fell apart.

Ben Foden crossed for Northampton after just 55 seconds but the Tigers rallied and went over twice through Craig Newby and Marcos Ayerza.
