This Saturday sees Tigers face a Harlequins side featuring four changes from their last Guinness Premiership fixture against Sale Sharks.

England No8 Nick Easter takes over from Tom Guest, with the latter dropping to the replacements bench.

Elsewhere in the pack, hooker Chris Brooker comes in for Tani Funga, with Aston Croall promoted to the 22.

In the backs, Chris Malone wins the No10 shirt from Bristol-bound Adrian Jarvis, while England wing David Strettle starts at outside centre.

Simon Keogh will wear a Quins shirt in a Premiership fixture for the last time when he partners Tom Williams on the wing.

"We travel to Leicester for the climax of this season's fixture list,” said Quins director of rugby Dean Richards. “It will no doubt be a huge game for both players and supporters and I am looking forward to it being a wellfought match.

“It is a young and talented squad who will be making the journey to Welford Road tomorrow. We haven't given up the fourth spot yet and we are still in with a shout."
