Leicester Tigers edge Newcastle Falcons in Premiership

Leicester Tigers bounced back from last week’s loss by edging Newcastle Falcons 13-14 at Kingston Park the Aviva Premiership.

Newcastle almost snatched the victory with a late break from Vereneki Goneva and then again with a disallowed Temm try in the corner and again with a late drop goal attempt.

The victory is Leicester’s second from three matches this season.
