Tigers clinch Premiership crown

Updated: May 25, 2013


Leicester won the Aviva Premiership title 37-17, in a thrilling encounter against Northampton at Twickenham.

Northampton hooker Dylan Hartley was dismissed by the referee for verbal abuse, a decision that could prove costly for the England and British Lions hooker. Hartley could be banned for up to a year after accusing the referee of cheating, which will effectively end his tour to Australia before it has even begun.

Morris, Kitchener, Tuilagi, and Goneva crossed the line for the Tigers with Ford contributing 12 points with the boot after coming on for the injured Flood.
