For England players Leicester Tigers have quartet available for Saturday’s Aviva Premiership against Newcastle Falcons on Welford Road.
Ben Youngs, George Ford, Dan Cole and Jonny May worked with Eddie Jones’ which is England squad at the start of the week and now back at Oval Park. Ellis Genge after shoulder injury continues his recovery.
Coach Matt O’Conor said all available on weekend and trained in Brighton on Monday and Tuesday and pulled up OK. Also, it will be a tough pretty month some tough fixtures, some contests as for freshening up the group and will be capable of winning this weekend.
Tom Youngs suffering from hamstring problem is unlikely available on Saturday’s hooker and it is good news for the Tigers and their skipper as it is not a serious injury and he is progressing very well but to be a little bit early this weekend.
Full-back Mathew Tait had to move from starting slots to the replacements bench at Sandy Park because of a stiff back as he did feature in the game, but O’Connor said that there is no reaction of Tait for selection against the Falcons. Dom Barrow is waiting for recovery of neck problem from the last month which has dogged him. O’Connor said he is waiting to get rid of this issue as we need him in and around the group as he is a quality lock which offers them so much physical exchanges.
The Tigers team is heading to this weekend on a six-game losing streak and four successive Premiership defeats. Just to make sure that they are accurate and beat across these 80 minutes. Also, there are a couple of dips which have been very costly against Saracens and Exeter and have to make sure that they will perform and do justice to the quality of the group they have against the Irish.
