London Irish director of rugby Brian Smith was disappointed with his side’s indiscipline as they were beaten by Leicester Tigers.

Irish scored two tries through Anthony Watson and Tom Homer, to Leicester’s solitary effort by lock Rob Andrew.

Irish boss Brian Smith said: “We are disappointed. We got a decent start and if you look at the teams you would say London Irish had more talent on paper.

“But you don’t win games on paper, you win them on the park and Leicester were very enthusiastic. They played up to their potential.

“We outscored them two tries to one, which is an achievement at Welford Road but we got absolutely hammered with penalties, 14-7. That killed us.”
