Leicester Tigers side for Sunday

Steve Borthwick has named the Leicester Tigers matchday squad to travel to Bath in Round 16 of the Premiership season.

Tom Youngs captains the side alongside Ellis Genge and Dan Cole in the front row, with Tigers Academy graduates Harry Wells and Calum Green included as the Leicester locks. George Martin, Tommy Reffell and Jasper Wiese complete the Leicester pack in the back row.

Ben Youngs, in just his second Premiership appearance of the season, is named alongside George Ford as the Tigers half-backs, with Dan Kelly partnering Matías Moroni in the Leicester midfield. Borthwick has named an unchanged back three from last weekend’s European outing for the trip to The Rec with Freddie Steward at full-back, and Kini Murimurivalu and Harry Potter as the wings.

Charlie Clare, Luan de Bruin, Joe Heyes, Tomás Lavanini and Luke Wallace are the forwards replacements and Richard Wigglesworth, Johnny McPhillips and Matt Scott are the backs on the bench
