Leicester Tigers players Rebecca de Filippo, Lucy Nye and Orla Proctor are all set to feature for the UK Armed Forces tonight. 

Although the players are representing the UK Armed Forces inter-services team, all three serve in the RAF, as Air Specialist (Class 1), Flight Lieutenant and Corporal respectively.

The three will feature in a special Remembrance match against Bristol Bears, with kick-off scheduled for 7.45pm and the match set to take place at Gloucester's Kingsholm Stadium. 

De Filippo will start at inside-centre for the squad, while Nye, the side's vice-captain, will start at scrum-half.

Versatile back-three player Orla Proctor begins the game on the bench and will look to make an impact as a finisher.
