Leicester Tigers have been forced to make two late changes to the starting line-up to face Worcester Warriors at Sixways on Saturday (3pm).

Prop Martin Castrogiovanni picked up an ankle knock in training and was ruled out ahead of kick-off. England international Dan Cole takes his place in the starting front row with Julian White coming into the replacements.

England Under-20 international Andy Forsyth was drafted on to the Tigers bench in place of Johne Murphy.
