Team news: Tigers in Montpellier

Figure image
Niall Morris and Thomas Waldrom return to the Leicester Tigers line-up for Sunday's Heineken Cup Pool 5 match away to Montpellier.

Morris comes in on the wing, while Waldrom takes the No8 shirt in the only changes to the team that started last Sunday’s 41-32 win over the French side at Welford Road.

Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill said: “I thought it was a good performance last weekend, with some good tries and a great attitude to play throughout the team.

“Montpellier also showed just dangerous they can be and there are certainly parts of the game we can improve on.”

Tigers are making a first-ever trip to the Stade Yves du Manoir in the fourth-round fixture in Pool 5.

Sunday’s match is a 4pm kick-off local time, 3pm UK time. The match is scheduled for live TV coverage by Sky Sports.
