Figure image
Anthony Allen returns to the Leicester Tigers line-up for Saturday's European Rugby Champions Cup match against the Scarlets.

Allen resumes at centre on his return from injury and teams up with Vereniki Goneva after Manu Tuilagi’s injury in the win over Ulster Rugby last Saturday.
Miles Benjamin starts on the wing after coming off the bench last weekend and Owen Williams is at fly-half on his return to south Wales.
Marcos Ayerza makes his 50th European appearance since his club debut in 2006. He becomes the 11th Tigers player to reach this landmark in European competition.
Tigers will be in the club’s green home kit for Saturday’s game.
This fixture will be shown live by BT Sport or follow Tigers’ social media channels and the club website for all the updates.
