Team news : Tigers versus Bath

Figure image
Toby Flood returns to captain Leicester Tigers in the opening game of 2014, against Aviva Premiership rivals Bath Rugby at Welford Road this Sunday (2pm).

Club captain Flood is back in action after missing the last two league games due to injury and takes the No12 shirt after Dan Bowden was ruled out by fractures to cheekbone and eye-socket during the match against Sale Sharks last Saturday. Anthony Allen is still on his way back to full fitness after a calf muscle injury.

Miles Benjamin returns on the wing, Jordan Crane starts at No8 and former Bath hooker Rob Hawkins is included in the squad for the first time this season on his recovery from injury.

Tickets for Sunday’s match are still available from the Tigers ticket office. Call in at Welford Road or phone 0844 856 1880 to book. The office is open 8.30am-5pm Friday, 9am-5pm Saturday and from 9am on Sunday. Or book online and pick up from the collection point outside the ticket office on your way to the game.
