Leicester Tigers team news

MathewTaitTigersFeb16

Mathew Tait and Matt Smith return to the Leicester Tigers line-up for Saturday’s match away to Wasps in Round 16 of the Aviva Premiership season.

Full-back Tait withdrew in the warm-up ahead of last weekend's bonus-point win over second-placed Exeter Chiefs but has recovered from a groin injury in time to start at the Ricoh Arena.
 
Smith joins Peter Betham at centre in the absence of Manu Tuilagi who is with the England squad to face Wales.
 
There is one change among the replacements, where on-loan prop Ellis Genge could make his Tigers debut after being included in the matchday squad for a first time. George Tresidder continues as scrum-half cover with Sam Harrison ruled out by injury.
