Leicester Tigers head coach Matt O'Connor speaks to LTTV to preview the second pre-season fixture of the 2018/19 campaign against Benetton Rugby in Treviso.

O'Connor named a 32-man squad for the Friday night fixture at Stadio di Monigo on Thursday afternoon, which includes the trio of new recruits Kyle Eastmond and David Denton, who will feature in their first fixture for the club since joining ahead of the 2018/19 season over the summer.

Mike Williams, Telusa Veainu, Sam Harrison and this week's captain Mike Fitzgerald will make their first appearances of the season after being included, while veteran back Mat Tait is also in line for his first appearance with his inclusion among the replacements.
