Development XV team to face Sale Jets

Figure image
Louis Deacon makes his return from injury for the Leicester Tigers Development XV tonight in their Aviva Premiership Rugby A League clash with Sale Jets at Heywood Road (kick-off 7.45pm).

Louis missed the end of last season after picking up a hamstring injury away to Worcester Warriors, and his comeback was delayed further by a shoulder operation during the summer.

He is joined in the second row by Rob Andrew, while his brother starts Brett in the back row alongside Lucas Guillame and Michael Noone.

Mathew Tait starts at full-back as he continues his comeback from a groin injury while Micky Young is fit again after an ankle injury.
