Team news: Tigers versus Warriors

jkitto-leic-0710

Dom Barrow and Jono Kitto come into the Leicester Tigers starting line-up for Saturday’s home game against Worcester Warriors in Round 6 of the Aviva Premiership season.

Barrow partners Graham Kitchener at lock after returning from injury as part of the squad at Sale Sharks last weekend.

England international prop Ellis Genge starts a game at Welford Road for the first time as he joins Tom Youngs and Greg Bateman in the front row.

Kitto lines up at scrum-half in his first start of the season, with the rest of the backline unchanged from the trip to Sale in Round 5.

Harry Thacker is included in the matchday squad for the first time this season after leading the Tigers Development XV to a third successive win against Sale Jets this week.

Match tickets for Saturday are still available. Book in person at Welford Road, phone 0116 319 8888 (option 2) or online at www.leicestertigers.com. The ticket office is open 9am-5pm Monday-Saturday, or book online any time.
