Leicester turned around a 24-point deficit to secure a dramatic victory at Gloucester. The final score was 31-38.

It's three years since a new coaching structure was put in at the club and fans were hoping their side could push for a place in the top 4.

The pilot said it was an accident on landing when his Pitts Special aerobatic biplane left the runway.

Thankfully it was a lucky escape for the pilot - but it's safe to say he won't be using the plane again in a hurry.
