    <TD =abstract>Head coach Pat Howard has made five changes to his Leicester Tigers team for the Heineken Cup semi-final against Llanelli Scarlets.</TD></TR>
    <TR>
    <TD =article>Following last weekend’s EDF Energy Cup Final victory at Twickenham, there are recalls for Geordan Murphy, Andy Goode, Alex Moreno and Louis Deacon, and the return from injury of Lewis Moody.

    There are also changes on the bench, where Sam Vesty is joined by Seru Rabeni, Leo Cullen and Michael Holford.

    Marcos Ayerza is suspended, while Howard is also without Martin Castrogiovanni (hamstring) and Paul Burke (knee) who were injured in the Twickenham win over the Ospreys last weekend.

    Murphy is at full-back, with the rest of the backline unchanged from Twickenham. Goode joins Harry Ellis in the half-back pairing.

    Moreno and Julian White prop either side of George Chuter, while Deacon joins Ben Kay in the second row. The back row features Moody, Jennings and captain Martin Corry.

    Tickets for the game will remain on sale from Tigers until 4pm on Friday. The Walkers Stadium ticket office will be open for sales on matchday.

      I'm surprised they left out Plug too.


      The backrow battle is going to be huge again.

        I think Humph jr is still injured so it would have been Burke, seems a fair enough call, both vesty and murphy can fit in at 10 in an emergency

                  After theScarlets'disgraceful performance in Musgrave Park last Saturday, they don't deserve to be allowed play on the same pitch as a quality team like Leicester.


                  I've seen girls' teams play with more pride and professionalism than the Scarlets displayed last Saturday.

                    Scarlets will win this one OD. Last Saturday the Scarlets had their eye on tomorrow. It's their year. Tigers are going out.



                    Frank the Tank is not coming back. OK? That part of me is over, water under the bridge.

                      If Harry is tipping the Scarlets, thenit's time to put my€150 overtime on Leicester!

                          6-3 after 15. Murphy just into the bin. Jones misses resulting penalty badly


                          Leicester look good in defence so far and getting possession but llanelli will still look to catch them on the break

                              ok, second half so far two props sent off for fighting at about 45 minutes. scarlets scored and went 16-17 up a few minutes later and jennings just scored a try back down the middle in open space from a goode chip


                              leicester converted and its 23 - 17


                              very entertaining game so far
