Debutant Ted Hill’s last-minute try snatched a dramatic 44-37 Premiership win for Worcester Warriors after Leicester Tigers came roaring back, while Saracens went top with a bonus-point win over Gloucester.
Worcester claimed their first success of the season to climb off the bottom of the table at Welford Road on Sunday, but Leicester produced an almighty second-half fightback to leave a pulsating contest in the balance in the closing stages.
Worcester were not to be denied, though, 19-year-old lock Hill marking a bow to remember by diving over in the left corner and Weir taking his time before adding the extras to take his tally to 22 points on a painful afternoon for Leicester.

There was a first-half double for Maro Itoje after David Strettle crossed, then Sean Maitland and Alex Lozowski went over as Danny Cipriani failed to make his mark following his omission from an England training camp.
