Figure image
Dom Barrow and Jono Kitto come into the Leicester Tigers starting line-up for Saturday's home game against Worcester Warriors in Round 6 of the Aviva Premiership season.

Barrow partners Graham Kitchener at lock after returning from injury as part of the squad at Sale Sharks last weekend.

England international prop Ellis Genge starts a game at Welford Road for the first time as he joins Tom Youngs and Greg Bateman in the front row.

Kitto lines up at scrum-half in his first start of the season, with the rest of the backline unchanged from the trip to Sale in Round 5.
Harry Thacker is included in the matchday squad for the first time this season after leading the Tigers Development XV to a third successive win against Sale Jets this week.
