Late tries by Simon Taylor and David Barnes helped Bath claim a bonus-point win over Leicester to keep their LV=Cup semi-final hopes alive.

The Tigers, who finished pointless in their group, also had hooker Rob Hawkins sent off in the first half.

Bath twice took a first-half lead through Nick Scott and Tom Biggs but tries by Ed Slater and Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino kept Leicester in it.

However, the departure of Hawkins allowed Bath to take control.
