Team news: Tigers versus Racing 92

Figure image
Matt Toomua will make his home debut for Leicester Tigers in Sunday's European Champions Cup match against Racing 92.

The Welford Road crowd will welcome the Australia international after his first appearance in Tigers colours in the Pool 1 fixture away to Glasgow Warriors last weekend.
Toomua starts at centre and Tigers also welcome JP Pietersen on the wing after missing the last three games.
Marcos Ayerza and Ed Slater return to the forward pack in the other changes following the opener in Glasgow.
Sunday’s game will kick off following a minute’s silence in honour of Munster head coach Anthony Foley who died last weekend in the hours before his team were due to run out against Racing 92 in Paris.
Match tickets are available now. Book in person or by phoning 0116 319 8888 (option 2). The ticket office is open 9am-5pm Monday-Saturday and from noon on Sunday this week. Or book online any time on the Tigers club website at www.leicestertigers.com
