Ed Slater, Mike Fitzgerald and Lachlan McCaffrey are also back in the forward pack for the visit of Quins.

Adam Thompstone makes his 100th Tigers appearance in a backline which welcomes back Mathew Tait and Tom Brady, while Jono Kitto starts at scrum-half.

South Africa international prop Pat Cilliers is included in a Premiership squad for the first time and there are places for Jack Roberts and George Worth after starting the back-to-back Cup wins against Bath and the Dragons in the last two weeks.

Sunday’s game will attract the biggest attendance of the season so far at Welford Road with 25,000 tickets already sold.
