Mauger and White return for Tigers

Figure image
Aaron Mauger and Julian White both return to the Tigers starting XV for this Sunday's Guinness Premiership fixture at Sale Sharks.

The All Black centre and the British and Irish Lions prop were both among the replacements for last weekend’s trip to Toulouse, as was Luke Abraham, who earns a starting spot on the openside flank for Tigers’ eighth league game of the season.

Tom Croft joins Abraham in the back row, with captain Martin Corry moving to No8.

Mauger starts at inside centre, while Johne Murphy wears the No14 shirt for the final match of 2007.

The side features an all-international front five, with White packing down alongside George Chuter and Marcos Ayerza, with Ben Kay and James Hamilton named in the second row.

Frank Murphy and Andy Goode continue at halfback, with Tom Varndell, Ollie Smith and Geordan Murphy the other outside backs.
