Dan Carter returns to the Racing 92 line-up for Sunday's European Champions Cup match against Leicester Tigers at Welford Road.

The New Zealand fly-half, who holds the world record for Test match points, starts alongside captain Maxime Machenaud, as he did in the Champions Cup semi-final between the teams in Nottingham in April.
All Blacks wing Joe Rokocoko is included in the backline, together with Johannes Goosen who kicked the decisive long-range penalty in the win over Tigers last season.
The forward pack features seven internationals, including France hooker Camille Chat and the former All Blacks back-rower Chris Masoe who played in two European Cup Final wins with Toulon before moving to the Paris club.
Tigers include Matt Toomua for his home debut, while Marcos Ayerza and JP Pietersen return to the starting line-up. Click here for the Tigers team news.
