Leicester Tigers 28, Bath Rugby 3
The guts were there and the endeavour was there. But despite delivering one of their most spirited showings of the season, Bath Rugby went down three tries to nil against a Leicester side whose full-blooded muscularity eventually gave them the spoils.
A titanic defensive effort in the first half meant Bath trailed just 3-0 at the break in front of a packed Welford Road, but the Tigers pack ramped up the pressure and squeezed the life out of the visitors as the game wore on.
