Steve Borthwick discusses the matchday squad named to take on Bristol Bears in Round 21 of the 2019/20 Gallagher Premiership.

The Leicester Tigers head coach chats about the debut for Georgian international front-rower Shalva Mamukashvili, the decision to appoint Thom Smith as captain for the fixture - and include three vice-captains alongside the back rower - as well the expectations of the coaching staff against the Bears and opportunity for the inexperienced side to continue their progression. 

Borthwick also shares why it is important to have a core group of Tigers academy graduates making their mark in senior rugby and thoughts on the club's opponents in the penultimate round of the season, plus plenty more.
