Tigers edge Bath for final spot
Leicester's 'shadow' team battled their way into the LV= Cup final with a never-say-die performance as they recorded a 17-16 victory over a near full-strength Bath side at the Recreation Ground.
Eighteen-year-old fly-half George Ford kicked four crucial penalties - three of them in the second half - to help earn the win. The Tigers try was an opportunist effort in the first half by lock Graham Kitchener.
Bath had romped through the pool stages, scoring almost seven tries a game, but found themselves locked in a typically hard-fought contest with their old rivals. Their own tyro fly-half, Tom Heathcote, kicked three penalties and converted a try by hooker Lee Mears.
But the visitors had done enough to earn a place in the final at Worcester on March 18 when they will face either Northampton or Scarlets.
