Saracens 9 Leicester 9
It was honours even in front of a healthy Wembley Stadium crowd as Saracens and Leicester served up a tense battle.
We'd seen tries aplenty in front of more than 60,000 at Twickenham on the opening day, but the 50,000 in attendance at the home of English football witnessed a game that was dominated by mean defence and the battle in midfield.
Though a low-scoring encounter, Leicester racked up a point a minute following the kick off courtesy of two Toby Flood penalty goals to establish an early lead.
Flood then made it 9-0 on the half-hour as the Tigers continued to capitalise on poor discipline from their opponents, before Owen Farrell, with his father looking on from the stands, got Sarries off the mark with a three-pointer of his own as the first half edged to a close.
Though Sarries would rue two missed attempts from Farrell in the first half that may have altered the outcome of this contest.
Following his introduction from the bench, Charlie Hodgson took over the Saracens kicking duties in the second half, and he was on target with a quickfire double just before the hour to level the scores.
As the game approached the closing stages, both sides sought to eat up the territory and carve out an opportunity to knock off over a drop-goal, that may have won them the game.
A close-range attempt from Hodgson in front of the posts in the 77th minute drifted to the right of the sticks, and that proved to be Sarries' final opportunity to win the match.
But a determined gallop forward from Flood in the final possession of the game allowed Leicester the opportunity to knock over a winner, but his long-range drop goal attempt, though handsome, was off target.
