Leicester were denied a first Gallagher Premiership success at the Recreation Ground for 10 years after Ben Spencer's late conversion gave Bath a dramatic 21-20 victory.

The Tigers' last league win on Bath soil came in March 2011 but fly-half George Ford's five penalties and a try by centre Matias Moroni looked to be enough.

Bath wing Will Muir scored his second try two minutes from time, though, and scrum-half Spencer stepped up to land the touchline conversion and thwart Leicester.

Muir touched down early in the action and there was also a try for replacement flanker Miles Reid, with Spencer kicking three conversions.

Leicester had dominant spells based on strong forward foundations, with England prop Ellis Genge shining at the set-piece and in the loose and South African No 8 Jasper Wiese hitting hard in attack and defence.
