    <TD ="abstract">Leicester Tigers head coach Pat Howard has kept faith with the 22 that beat Cardiff Blues last weekend as the club prepare to face European champions Munster on Saturday night (kick-off 5.35pm). Howard makes only one change from the 34-0 victory, with Julian White replacing Marcos Ayerza at tight-head prop.</TD></TR>

    <TD ="article">Ayerza drops to the replacements bench, where he is joined by the six other substitutes who played their part against the Blues at Welford Road.

    Geordan Murphy continues at full back, with Seru Rabeni and Alesana Tuilagi retainng their places on the wings. Ian Humphreys and Harry Ellis are again named at half-back, with Andy Goode unavailable due to injury.

    Daryl Gibson faces a late fitness test. If he is ruled out, he will be replaced by Ollie Smith, with Leon Lloyd coming in as a replacement.

    Humphreys, who has just signed a newcontract with the club,also faces a late fitness test. If he is ruled out, he will be replaced by Paul Burke.

            My views on Burke are well known - I regard his recruitment by Leicester as almost as bad as Munster signing Wyatt.


            I'm disappointed that Johne Murphy isn't beinggiven a chance to take on Marcus Horan - Munster's best wing threequarter in living memory.

                Is Hipkiss english? If he isn't then Harry Ellis is the only Englishman in the entire Tigers back line, there lies the problem with English rugby at the moment methinks.

                  Harry Ellis is English.



                  I make that 6 English players in the starting 15.

                    Dan Hipkiss makes it 7. Still a poor reflection on English rugby.

                      Looks like about as good a side as Leicester could have fielded. Certainly better balanced than the starting lineup for the Welford Road game.


                      Those are 2 huge fitness tests for them though. Losing 10 &amp; 12 would be a big blow if they don't make it!

                        Based on their back row I'd prefer to see Leamy, Wally and Axel in ours.

                          Burke's not on the bench though - so he'll go straight into the team if IH doesn't start; what if IH falls over 0.01 seconds into the match?

                            Smith or Vesty will play OH.

                              Anyone else think Plug and Ellis are liabilities for them? Hot headed as
                              they both are, and we all know Plugs record against us. Will we see
                              them targetted the way Chabal was last season?
