  1. Over and out for another day

    FT: Leicester 35-30 Gloucester

    Leicester fight back against Gloucester to move back to fourth in the Premiership table in a game defined by a brand of adventurous attacking play.

    All the excitement was largely instigated by Gloucester when they produced three tries in nine first-half minutes to stun the hosts.

    However, Leicester responded in kind. The end product, one of the most thrilling 80 minutes of open rugby this term.

    For now, Tigers occupy the last play-off spot, but Northampton have a chance to go above them again tomorrow when they travel to Coventry to face Wasps (15:00 BST).

    You can of course follow all of the action here on BBC Sport.

    Until then, goodbye.

    At The Twickenham Stoop Tim Visser continues to show the home fans his box of tricks as he adds his second of the afternoon and Harlequins finally have this game in the bag. 

    It's hotting up in Reading as London Irish's young sensation Johnny Williams scores their second try of the afternoon but it's been cancelled out by TJ Ioane. 

    Back at Sandy Park there's been another try and guess who it is? Thomas Waldrom has added his hat-trick score and the Chiefs' afternoon is looking very rosy. 

  19. Leicester 23-27 Gloucester

    Leicester are allowing an error to many into their attacking game right now.

    They manage to recover after a wild pass out wide from Owen Williams, but as Graham Kitchener punches through the middle, the ball is spilled.

    They are close to pinning Gloucester back, but are overcooking their attempts a little at times. Just 17 minutes remain.

  20. Leicester 23-27 Gloucester

    Gloucester's Ben Morgan is stopped just short and Jacob Rowan tries to burrow over.

    Huge defensive effort by Leicester to keep the Cherry and Whites out.

    Leicester clear up field. Danger averted for the hosts.
