Leicester Tigers team news for European Champions Cup

Peter Betham and Freddie Burns return to the Leicester Tigers line-up for Sunday’s European Champions Cup Pool 4 meeting with Munster Rugby at Welford Road (5.15pm).

Australia international Betham is named alongside Matt Smith at centre after missing the game in Limerick last weekend, while fly-half Burns replaces Owen Williams who jarred a knee in that match.
 
There are no changes among the forwards for the second leg of the head-to-head fixtures, with Ed Slater leading the team on home ground.
 
Tom Croft has recovered from illness to take a place among the replacements in the only other change to last week's line-up.
 
Match tickets are still available. Book at the Welford Road ticket office, phone 0116 319 8888 (option 2) or online at the Tigers website.
