Croft leads Development XV at Sixways tonight

Figure image
Leicester Tigers Development XV have opted for a mix of youth and experience for their trip to Worcester this evening as they look to bounce back from last Monday's Guinness A League defeat to Leeds Carnegie.

The starting XV features seven academy squad members, all of whom have impressed so far this season, but there are also places for a number of first-team squad members looking to press their claims for senior inclusion.

Tom Croft captains the side from No8, with Ben Herring, Alex Moreno, Gavin Hickie and Dave Young all named in a strong Tigers pack.

Ian Humphreys and Ben Youngs form an exciting half-back partnership, with Rickie Aley moving from outside-half to full back for the trip to Sixways.

Tigers’ next home fixture in the Guinness A League takes place on Monday, November 12 against Newcastle Falcons at Welford Road (kick-off 7pm).
