Leicester Tigers welcome back Graham Kitchener, Anthony Allen and Blaine Scully following injury for Sunday’s sell-out Aviva Premiership Round 12 fixture against Bath Rugby at Welford Road.

All three sat out the bonus-point win at Sale Sharks during the weekend after Christmas but have been passed fit to return for the start of the second half of the league programme.
 
Marcos Ayerza and Tom Youngs, who both started among the replacements at Sale, return to the starting line-up and they are joined in the front row by Fraser Balmain.
 
Julian Salvi makes his 100th appearance for the club since his debut at the start of 2011/12 season.
 
Sunday's game is a 24,000 sell-out at Welford Road. This fixture is scheduled for live coverage on BT Sport. Kick-off is at 2pm.
