Tom Williams scored the only try as Harlequins overcame Leicester

Aviva Premiership champions Harlequins maintained their impressive start to the season with a hard-earned 22-9 victory at Leicester - the team they beat in May's Twickenham final.

Their victory was Quins' fourth on the trot and sent a strong message to their rivals that they are determined to hang on to the title they won with a 30-23 win over the Tigers.

Winger Tom Williams scored the only try of the match, while fly-half Nick Evans kicked four penalties and a conversion and Danny Care was successful with a drop-goal attempt. Leicester created little and their points all came from England fly-half Toby Flood, who kicked three penalties.
