Tigers today have revealed their squad for the upcoming European games. Only long term injury victim Tom Croft is omitted giving hope to Tigers fans that the likes of Steve Mafi, Mat Tait, Rob Hawkins and Manu Tuilagi are closer to fitness than first hoped.
Tigers include youngsters Scott Steele, Owen Williams, Fraser Balmain and Tom Bristow but there is no place for the likes of Tom Price or Henry Purdy.
Tigers are entitled to nominate a further 2 players during the Pool Stages in place of a player in the original 38 man squad, one of whom must be a front rower. If Tigers reach the knock out stages they will be allowed to register 3 more players, one of whom must be a front rower.
