Leicester Tigers team news for European Champions Cup quarter-final

Back-rowers Brendon O’Connor, Lachlan McCaffrey and Mike Fitzgerald return to the Leicester Tigers line-up for Sunday’s European Rugby Champions Cup quarter-final against Stade Francais Paris at Welford Road.

O'Connor came through his first appearance following injury last weekend as Tigers recorded a bonus-point win over Gloucester Rugby in the Aviva Premiership and is joined in the back row by Fitzgerald and McCaffrey who have both sat out the last two weeks.
 
In the backline, Mathew Tait returns at full-back and captains the team, with Telusa Veainu switching to the wing and Freddie Burns joins Ben Youngs at half-back.
 
Club captain Ed Slater joins internationals Logovi'i Mulipola and Tom Croft among the replacements.
 
Tickets for Sunday's game are still available from the Leicester Tigers ticket office. Call in at Welford Road or phone 0116 319 8888 (open 9am-5pm Monday-Saturday and from 9am Sunday). Or book online any time at www.leicestertigers.com.
