Brett Deacon makes a return to Kingsholm this evening as the Leicester Tigers Development XV take on Gloucester United in the Aviva Premiership Rugby A League.

Deacon, who returned to Welford Road in the summer after two years at Gloucester, lines up alongside fellow summer signing Richard Thorpe in the back row.

Rob Andrew, who started the opening Aviva Premiership game of the season away to London Welsh, starts in the second row.

Tigers, who beat Newcastle Falcons in their last ‘A’ League outing, are captained by Matt Cornwell.

Former Tigers Academy fly-half Tim Taylor starts for Gloucester, who are unbeaten in this season’s Aviva Premiership Rugby A League.

The game kicks off at 7.30pm. Admission is £5 for adults and £1 for U16s. Seating is unallocated.
