Leicester Tigers sack defence coach Scott Hansen after slow start to the campaign
Hansen, who joined the club last year, was shown the exit door after the Tigers conceded four more in their loss to Sale last weekend.
“We did some good things against Sale, scoring 30 points away from home, and still managed to find a way to lose. We’ve got to be a little bit more resilient defensively,” said director of rugby Richard Cockerill.
“It’s been a little bit disappointing up to this point. However, we’re still fourth without playing anywhere near as well as we can.”
