Leicester Tigers team news for Aviva Premiership Rugby Round 15

Leicester Tigers have recalled Logovi’i Mulipola, Vereniki Goneva and Peter Betham to the starting line-up for Sunday’s home game against Exeter Chiefs in Round 15 of the Aviva Premiership season.

Mulipola comes into the front row alongside Marcos Ayerza and Harry Thacker in an otherwise unchanged forward pack from the win over London Irish last weekend.
 
Betham joins Manu Tuilagi at centre, while Goneva returns on the wing.
 
Fly-half Owen Williams is included among the replacements in his first appearance in a matchday squad since suffering a fractured jaw in the home win over Northampton Saints in early January.
 
Tickets for Sunday's match are still available at the Tigers ticket office. Book in person at Welford Road or phone 0116 319 8888 (option 2). The office is open 9am-5pm Monday-Saturday and from 9am on Sunday matchdays. Or book online any time on the club website at www.leicestertigers.com
