Figure image
Tigers Academy will be looking to bounce back from the recent defeat against Northampton when they take on Bath at Oval Park on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 2pm).

Since the reverse fixture against the West Country side was abandoned after an injury to prop Adam Parkins back in September, Tigers have recorded four wins in their seven full fixtures, including an impressive victory against Clermont Auvergne during October's tour of France.

Mitchell Culpin and Ben Youngs return to the Academy side having played their part in Monday's Guinness A League victory over Northampton Wanderers at Franklin's Gardens.

Greg Sammons captains the side from hooker, with Tom Collett taking a place on the replacements bench having also been involved for the Development XV at Northampton.
