Leicester Tigers team news

Tom Croft and Logovi’i Mulipola return to the Leicester Tigers squad for Saturday’s Aviva Premiership Round 13 game away to Harlequins.

England international Croft joins Julian Salvi and Jordan Crane in the Tigers back row and makes his 100th appearance in Premiership rugby.
 
The return of Croft is the only change to the Tigers starting line-up after last week's win against Bath at Welford Road.
 
Samoa international prop Mulipola is included in the matchday squad for the first time since suffering an Achilles injury in the Round 3 defeat at Bath back in September. Jamie Gibson provides back-row cover among the replacements.
