Leicester Tigers have named the matchday squad to face Sale Sharks in Round 17 of Allianz Premiership Women's Rugby, returning to Mattioli Woods Welford Road for the final time this season.

The game will see Tigers' American and Canadian internationals return to the fold after the culmination of the Pacific Four series.

The starting XV sees just two changes to the side's last match, away at Bristol Bears.

The first sees American international Tahlia Brody slot in at No. 8, with Becky Noon moving to lock to partner Charlotte Fray, while the front row is unchanged following Amy Cokayne's hat-trick at Ashton Gate.

In the backline, Tess Feury also returns, named on the wing as part of a back-three that includes newly-crowned women's new player of the year Francesca McGhie.

The bench includes a number of returning internationals, Julia Omokhuale, Keia Mae Sagapolu Sanele and Claire Gallagher, as well as the return of prop Ofure Ugiagbe.
