Power of Leicester Tigers pack could be decisive factor

Internationals return in crucial Aviva Premiership battle

Prop Ellis Genge returns for Leicester
1 of 1

Aviva Premiership
BT Sport 1, 3pm Sunday

This used to be one of the most intense rivalries in English top-flight rugby, and the fighting spirit of seasons past could be rekindled as the battle for a top-four finish goes into the final straight.

With a break next weekend after their early European exits, both teams have brought many of their internationals straight back into action, and Leicester's front-row ranks are boosted by the the return from injury of Ellis Genge.

Wasps coach Dai Young has admitted he has an eye on the Tigers' set-piece strength, hence his decision to go with five forwards on the bench, and the visitors could well find themselves on the back foot.

Leicester have lost one of their last five Premiership games, Wasps one of their last 11, so something has to give, and the power of the Tigers pack could be the decisive factor.

Recommendation
Leicester -1
