Leicester Tigers beat London Irish at Welford Road to end a three-game Premiership losing run and get their first win since the season restarted.

George Ford’s prolific boot and a try from David Williams established a 10-0 first-half lead for Tigers.

Ford added another penalty after the break, while Ben Meehan got the Exiles on the board after a series of surges.

It proved the last of the scoring, and condemned Irish to their fifth defeat in a row, and third since the restart.
