Leicester Tigers team news

Jordan Crane will captain Leicester Tigers at London Irish on Sunday in his 200th appearance for the club.

No8 Crane made his debut for Tigers in 2006 and becomes the 91st player to reach the 200 mark since the club's formation in 1880.
 
Hooker Tom Youngs and flanker Tom Croft return to Tigers colours at the Madejski Stadium after being among the England replacements for the victories over Wales and Italy in the opening weeks of the RBS 6 Nations.
 
Jack Roberts earns a first Premiership start at centre after some eye-catching form in recent weeks, while Miles Benjamin returns on the wing.
 
Ben Youngs and Dan Cole are unavailable as they are retained in the England squad after starting both Six Nations fixtures, while Robert Barbieri and Leonardo Ghiraldini are ruled out by injuries suffered on international duty with Italy in recent weeks. Julian Salvi is also sidelined by injury this week.
