Saracens came to play and took the game to Tigers in the first 20 minutes, but George Ford man of the match Leicester 10 controlled proceedings and his boot and a well worked try by Alesana Tuilagi took the Tigers in 13-12 up at half time having played into the stiff breeze.
The second period and Tigers started to take a grip although the pack never quite tamed Saracens and Chuter miss fired a couple of time in the line-out. However this was without a doubt to be Leicesters day and they scored a another try following yet another incision and well timed pass by young Ford to create the space to put Steve Mafi over in the corner and make the game safe.
Saracens never gave up on this one and played through to the full 80 minutes, but once Leicester got over 7 points ahead they never looked to have the cutting edge to reel them in. So it was we came to the final whistle and a well deserved eighth semi win for the Tigers and a final against Quins on the 26 May at Twickenham. Final score:
