Two Shock Inclusions In Leicester’s Starting Line-Up For Munster Clash


Head coach Matt O’Connor has named his Leicester Tigers team for this weekend’s return Champions Cup pool fixture with Munster at Welford Road.

The Australian has shocked everyone with the inclusion of both Matt Toomua and Manu Tuilagi, who are not only in the squad, but the starting line-up.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE

“Matt and Manu have been training hard, they’re world-class operators and it’s great to have them back,” Matt O’Connor said.

“We prepared well for last weekend but we didn’t deliver on the day and were beaten by a very committed Munster side,”

Here’s Leicester’s team.
