Rotherham Titans’ team to face the mighty Leicester Tigers includes the welcome return of Colin Noon at prop whose appearances this season has been limited to just 20 minutes due to injury.

Jon Benson covers for Bernardo Stortoni who has just returned to Argentina to get married and will be unavailable for 2 games. Geraint Lewis, Peter Jorgensen , Anthony Elliott and Glen Kenworthy all return to the starting line-up after being rested the week before.

The bench is interesting because it sees the return of veteran Mike Umaga to the fray to bring his considerable experience and power to the squad.

"I am really looking forward to the challenge of the Premiership again and have been training hard. I had not anticipated playing this year as I have been concentrating on coaching  – but we feel the need to try things differently to get that all-elusive first win," said Umaga.

"Although the Tigers are the most formidable challenge to face we feel that we are getting near that result that can galvanise our season"
