Jordan Crane returns to the starting line-up as Leicester Tigers travel to Harlequins in Round 19 of the Aviva Premiership on Saturday.

The England international has not started a game since scoring a hat-trick of tries in the Heineken Cup win over Benetton Treviso at the end of January.

Crane is named in the No8 shirt, with Thomas Waldrom named among the replacements.

The backline involved in the win over Bath Rugby last weekend is retained for the trip to the Twickenham Stoop.

Martin Castrogiovanni and George Skivington return to the matchday squad after missing the trip to Bath.
