Leicester Tigers Director of Rugby Richard Cockerill has slammed match referee Tim Wigglesworth after his team lost 24-20 to Harlequins in another controversial match for referee Tim Wigglesworth.
Ten minutes from the end of a tumultuous contest, Harlequins were four points adrift of the reigning champions and preparing to bid the most reluctant of farewells to their Premiership title ambitions. But no side armed with players running as hot as the scrum-half Danny Care and the full-back Mike Brown are ever wholly without hope. The two England internationals, assisted by the newly arrived Ben Botica, conjured a training ground try in the corner and when Botica added a penalty from distance, their league season was alive again.
