Leicester Lions delighted with league form

Leicester co-promoter Alan Jones is thrilled with his side's successful start to the Premier League campaign.

Lions have struggled in the League Cup but Saturday's 50-43 win over Somerset was the fourth in a row in the league.

Jones said: "We are naturally pleased with how the team applied themselves.

"Borne out of our home record last term and the two reverses in the League Cup last month, teams come to Beaumont Park expecting to win but that win will go a long way to reducing such thoughts."
