Back-rowers Tom Croft and Jordan Crane return to the starting line-up as Leicester Tigers travel to Bath Rugby in Round 22 of the Aviva Premiership season on Saturday.

Croft returns at flanker, with Crane at No8 as Tigers shuffle the pack for the final game of the regular league season and with a place in the semi-finals on the weekend of May 20/21/22 already secured.
 
On-loan prop Ellis Genge starts his first game in the Aviva Premiership after three games as a replacement.
 
In the backline, Jack Roberts is given a start at centre, with George Catchpole on the wing. Ben Youngs and Owen Williams continue in the half-back roles.
