    All Blacks centre Aaron Mauger returns to captain Leicester Tigers after missing the win at Gloucester in one of only two changes.

    Matt Smith moves to the wing following Alesana Tuilagi's injury, while Martin Corry, Martin Castrogiovanni, Lewis Moody and Louis Deacon are still out.

    London Irish also make just two changes, with Eoghan Hickey taking over from the injured Mike Catt at fly-half.

    Tonga Lea'aetoa starts at loose-head in place of the benched Alex Corbisiero.

    Leicester: G Murphy; Varndell, Hipkiss, Mauger, Smith; Flood, Ellis; Ayerza, Chuter, White, Blaze, Kay, Croft, Herring, Crane.

    Early days but it wouldn't suprise me if Irish make the top 4 this year.
