Club captain Ed Slater leads the team after making his 100th appearance for the Tigers in the win over Bath, and he is joined in the second row by Graham Kitchener in his first start of the season.
 
There is some rotation in the forward pack with Matias Aguero starting in the front row for the first time and Jordan Crane returning at No8. The replacements include international front rows Marcos Ayerza and Tom Youngs.
