Leicester Tigers team news for Aviva Premiership Rugby Round 11

Freddie Burns and Tommy Bell return to the Leicester Tigers team for Saturday’s Aviva Premiership Round 11 match away to Sale Sharks.

England international Burns is at fly-half, with Bell starting at full-back against his former club. In another change to the backline, Mathew Tait lines up against his former club on the wing in place of Blaine Scully.
 
The forward pack features returns for Jamie Gibson, Michele Rizzo and Leonardo Ghiraldini.
 
There is a place among the replacements for Fiji international Seremaia Bai on his return from a calf injury which has ruled him out since the win over Newcastle Falcons on the opening day of the season.
