Leicester have won their last six Premiership encounters with Leeds since the Yorkshiremen’s last victory: 23-22 at Headingley Carnegie in March 2005.
Leicester Tigers are Aviva Premiership Rugby’s top try scorers with 11, but have a won 1, lost 2 record! In addition the Tigers (along with Leeds) have the leakiest defence so far having conceded nine tries – already half the tally Leicester conceded during the whole of the 2009/10 regular season.
Leeds Carnegie are making their customary slow start and in fact have not won any Premiership game played in September since beating Saracens in 2004! Leeds’ only away win since February was 23-13 at London Irish on 18 April.
Leeds have lost on all eight previous visits to Welford Road in all competitions.
Referee: Chris White (182nd Premiership game)
