Exeter Chiefs continued their recent dominance over Leicester Tigers with a seventeen point comeback victory at Welford Road on Saturday.
Exeter hit the front early but the Tigers levelled it with a brilliant passing move that saw Telusa Veainu step around the defence and find Adam Thompstone, whose overhand pass inside enabled Jonny May to dot down.
It was 19-7 to Leicester after 20 minutes when the Tigers scored a sublime try starting with a George Ford cross-field kick to Jordan Taufua, who steamrolled Stuart Hogg to score.

Then Jordan Taufua FLATTENS Stuart Hogg 🔥 (no wonder they called him Beast at the Crusaders 😳)
The Tigers would go on to lose the game with Jonny Hill touching down in the corner for Exeter’s fourth try that gave them a nine-point advantage as the Tigers failed to score a single point in the second half.
