There are no Six Nations fixtures this weekend, but there will be no shortage of international rugby names as Leicester Tigers host Gloucester at Welford Road on Saturday (3pm).

Defending Guinness Premiership champions Tigers can boast internationals from eight countries in their playing squad, including Ireland’s Geordan Murphy, Argentina’s Marcos Ayerza, Italian prop Martin Castrogiovanni, Samoa wing Alesana Tuilagi, Australia’s Lote Tuqiri and New Zealand All Blacks Aaron Mauger, Scott Hamilton and Craig Newby.

And there is still a core of England men including Toby Flood, Jordan Crane, George Chuter, Louis Deacon, Harry Ellis, Sam Vesty and Dan Hipkiss, plus Rugby World Cup winners Ben Kay and Lewis Moody.

Gloucester have also assembled a star-studded squad, including Greg Somerville of New Zealand, Wales forward Gareth Delve and fly-half Nicky Robinson, Olivier Azam of France, Akapusi Qera of Fiji and England internationals Olly Morgan, Luke Narraway, Lesley Vainikolo and James Simpson-Daniel, the man who last week joined the elite band of players to top 50 Premiership tries following his hat-trick in the win over Harlequins.
