Figure image
All Black centre Aaron Mauger will make his first appearance for Tigers when the 2007 finalists take entertain Toulouse in the Heineken Cup this Saturday.

The 26-year-old Kiwi starts at inside centre alongside Dan Hipkiss, with Ollie Smith moving to the right wing.

Tom Varndell occupies the other wing berth as he looks to continue an impressive recent run of form that has seen him register five tries in his last four appearances.

Benjamin Kayser retains his place at hooker against his French compatriots, while Marco Wentzel and Luke Abraham are named at lock and openside flanker respectively.

Seru Rabeni and Martin Castrogiovanni return to the replacements bench after missing the last three and two games respectively due to injury.
