Leeds team for Sunday cup tie

Figure image
Double international Alex Moreno will line up against his former Leicester Tigers team-mates when he starts Sunday's LV= Cup tie in the Leeds Carnegie front row.

Moreno, capped by Argentina and Italy, was a popular figure in his time with Tigers before his departure in the summer of 2008.

Head coach Neil Back and director of rugby Andy Key will also be meeting former colleagues for the first time as Leeds make a raft of changes following their Guinness Premiership win at London Wasps last weekend.

Henry Paul provides the experience in the backline in a 23-man squad which features 13 players who have come through the club's junior ranks, including debutant fly-half Joe Ford.
