Banned for 4 weeks following red card for high tackle v Bristol.
ah so he has another 3 weeks to serve then
Correct. Luckily we have Toomua back. Hopefully he will play as well as he did in the away fixture v Racing.
Hopefully the whole 23 will give another good performance as they did in Paris? If they play with the same determination and spirit then they will win!!

Holmes at 15.
White still preferred to YBY.

Kitchener in for Wells. 6/2 split on the bench again. Would prefer to see Thompson at 6 with Fitz on bench but a good side that has a fighting chance.

Me too! Thompson seems to bring more energy and commitment that's been lacking recently.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a late change to this team either - sure JH is still going through protocols so must be a risk

Is Denton still out with a head injury from the Saints match at Twickenham?

Not convinced by 6:2 on the bench what happens if one of the back 3 is injured?

Noteworthy changes are Chavancy in the centre, Donnacha Ryan in the 2nd row, Machanaud on the bench (although Iribaren had a very good match last Sunday and Zebo in his best position at fullback.
This is another strong Racing team but my eternal optimism tells me that Tigers could sneak it if they get some early points on the board.

Owen can play FB and White on the wing at a push. May covers FB too. Not ideal but just about covered.

Slightly disappointed GT is on the bench, would have liked to see us play 2 7/8s. Big opportunity to get a win at home and good to have a bit of consistency in the back line.

Thompson for me, too.

If they play with the same spirit and attitude on Sunday, they will a lot of malcontents over, myself included
