Scott Hansen has left his job as Leicester Tigers' defence coach.

Hansen arrived in 2015 and his exit comes after the fourth-placed Tigers conceded 126 points - more than any other team in the top nine - in their opening five Premiership matches.

They shipped four tries in Saturday's 34-30 defeat at Sale Sharks.

A Tigers spokesman said: "We would like to thank Scott for his commitment and his hard work with the Tigers and we wish him all the best for the future."
