Leicester Tigers beat Northampton Saints 37-17 in a fascinating Aviva Premiership final at Twickenham. If you’ve seen the Dylan Hartley end of first half drama but haven’t yet watched the actual highlights, here’s a quick wrap up from Premiership Rugby.
“It was a bit of a rollercoaster. We started the game really well, scored a good try and then obviously we were a bit sloppy, let them back in and then it was really tight,” said Richard Cockerill.
“In the second half we just didn’t control the ball well enough in the early parts. The scored a good try, even with a winger down, so credit to Saints – they played really well, they took us to the line but eventually we wore them out.
“To get this far and not to win it is an opportunity missed so thankfully this year, third time lucky, it’s done,” added Cockerill.
