Bath win at Tigers!!

Leicester Tigers 12, Bath Rugby 26

Bath Rugby beat 13-man Leicester for the first time in seven encounters with a forwards-led bonus-point win in the LV= Cup.

Tries by Nick Scott, Tom Biggs, Simon Taylor and David Barnes gave Bath their first win at Welford Road since 2003.

But despite recording three out of four wins in Pool 4, Bath will almost certainly not progress to the semi-finals. For that to happen, all three of their pool rivals will have to lose this weekend.

The game had no shortage of drama, not least when former Bath hooker Rob Hawkins was sent off in the first half for two separate acts of wanton aggression.

Match Reaction

Leicester Tigers boss Richard Cockerill played down his side's loss to Bath Rugby this evening, describing the LV= Cup game as "meaningless".

Bath won at Welford Road 26-12 tonight - their first win here in eight years.

That condemned Leicester to four losses out of four matches in this season's LV= Cup.

But director of rugby Cockerill dismissed the defeat to their arch-rivals, saying his side's priority was the Aviva Premiership.
