Team news: Tigers away to Munster

Figure image
Manu Tuilagi and Ben Youngs return to the Leicester Tigers line-up for Saturday's European Champions Cup trip to face Munster Rugby in Limerick.

Tuilagi is back in the starting line-up for the Pool 1 clash after his recovery from a groin injury, while scrum-half Youngs makes his first club appearance since being named England’s Man of the Series in the autumn international period.
Fellow England international Dan Cole, though, is ruled out after suffering a leg injury in the victory over Australia last weekend.
Owen Williams joins Tuilagi in the centres, with Peter Betham moving to the wing.
Club captain Tom Youngs returns to the front row after missing the Derby Day win over Northampton Saints last Saturday.
Munster against Tigers is a 3.15pm kick-off at Thomond Park and is scheduled for live television coverage by BT Sport.
The return fixture is at Welford Road next Saturday (December 17) and is also a 3.15pm kick-off. Match tickets are available now at the Tigers ticket office, book in person, by phoning 0116 319 8888 (option 2) or click here to book online any time.
