Late changes to squad for Wasps trip

Figure image
Leicester Tigers acting head coach Richard Cockerill has had to make two changes to his replacements bench for Sunday?s trip to London Wasps in the Guinness Premiership (kick-off 3pm).

Tom Croft and Alesana Tuilagi have been withdrawn following fitness tests, to be replaced by Ben Herring and Tom Youngs.
England Saxons international Croft has a back problem and Tuilagi, who has just returned to the squad at the end of Samoa?s campaign in the Rugby World Cup, has a groin injury.

Former Hurricanes flanker Herring and England U-20 international centre Youngs are included in the 22 for the first time this season, though they were involved in the pre-season build-up with the senior squad.
