Team News | Tigers team to travel to London

Leicester Tigers have named the matchday squad to face Trailfinders Women in the second of two 7th place play-off matches in the Allianz Cup.

Natasha Jones captains the side for the trip to London, while two players will celebrate major milestones with Stef Evans making her club debut, after it was confirmed that the former Warriors Women had signed with the club, while Zoe Warrington makes her 20th Leicester Tigers appearance to become just the tenth player in club history to reach the figure.

Tanya Bird, if used off the bench, will join Warrington in reaching the 20-game milestone.

The starting side sees just two changes to the pack from last week’s outing, with Churchy Knight, who last week reached the 30-game milestone for Tigers, joining the front-row while the aforementioned Warrington slots in alongside Charlotte Fray at lock.

Meanwhile, in the backs, there’s just one change as Charlotte Daley makes her return on the wing, the flyer having scored twice in the Allianz Cup already this season.

Amongst the replacements, Evans gets set for her Tigers debut, Maddie Massey and Georgie Grimes return to the bench and Louisa Burgham gets set for her first Tigers appearance of the 2023/24 season.
