    London Irish v Leicester

    Venue: Madjeski Stadium Date: Sunday, 1 March Kick-off: 1300 GMT

    Steffon Armitage, Shane Geraghty and Paul Hodgson all make immediate returns to the Exiles' starting line-up after spells in the England elite squad.

    The only other change to the team that drew 20-20 with Bath last weekend is Tonga Lea'aetoa's appearance at prop.

    Top try-scorer Johne Murphy is back on the Tigers' wing, meaning a switch to full-back for Scott Hamilton.

    Mefin Davies and Dan Cole have been drafted into the front row, while Sam Vesty retains his place at fly-half.

    Good entertaining game this. Leicester full value for their lead... Mauger looking very, very good and Vesty looks a far better FH than Flood.
