Leicester Tigers team for Heineken Cup semi-final

Figure image
Scott Hamilton and Marcos Ayerza return to the Leicester Tigers team for the Heineken Cup semi-final against Cardiff Blues at the Millennium Stadium on Sunday (3pm).

Hamilton takes his place on the wing after being rested for last weekend’s Guinness Premiership win over Bristol Rugby, while Ayerza comes into the front row, alongside George Chuter and Martin Castrogiovanni.

Craig Newby keeps his place at blindside, with Ben Woods and Jordan Crane completing the back row as Tom Croft and Ben Kay continue at lock. Geordan Murphy again captains the team from full-back.

There are six internationals on the bench, including Julian White, Harry Ellis and Aaron Mauger who makes his return to the matchday squad after injury.

Tickets for Sunday’s semi-final will remain on sale at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday and Sunday.
