Tigers give Gibson the Baa-baas go-ahead

A Gallagher Premiership Rugby ball

The former All Black’s inclusion takes the number of Leicester players involved in the fixture up to three – the maximum quota for any club – and Gibson will line up against clubmates Martin Corry and Ollie Smith.

The Tigers travel to play Northampton Saints in the Zurich Premiership on the same day, where they will face a side who share the same handicap of minus three following the call up of Ben Cohen, Steve Thompson and Paul Grayson to England colours.

The Saints have withdrawn their scrum-half Mark Robinson from the New Zealand Barbarians squad, leaving the former All Black free to tussle with the Tigers.
