Figure image
Louis Deacon, Alesana Tuilagi and Ben Woods are again included in the Leicester Tigers Development XV for this evening's Guinness A League match against Sale Sharks at Heywood Road (7.30pm kick-off).

England international lock Deacon captains the team for a second consecutive week after making a successful return from a back injury in last Monday’s A League win over Gloucester.

Tuilagi and Woods also start for a second time as they look for more game-time after recovering from knee injuries.

Senior men Ayoola Erinle, Tom Varndell, Sam Vesty and Mefin Davies are included in the squad this evening, while England Under-18 international Andrew Forsyth starts at centre and Dan Hemingway is brought into the back row.
