Tigers make changes for trip to Bath

England international Ben Kay (pictured) will lead Leicester Tigers in Tuesday’s re-arranged Guinness Premiership match against Bath Rugby at The Rec (8pm).

With Tigers facing a league match just three days after defeat in the EDF Energy Cup Final and four days before a home date with Bristol Rugby, head coach Marcelo Loffreda rings the changes.

Kay is named as captain, while England Under-20 international Ollie Dodge makes his league debut on the wing after gaining senior experience with Bedford this season.

Tom Varndell, Christophe Laussucq, Sam Vesty, Benjamin Kayser, Julian White, Richard Blaze and Tom Croft all step up after being named among the replacements at Twickenham on Saturday, while Ayoola Erinle, Matt Cornwell and Ian Humphreys return to the backline.

Club captain Martin Corry is selected among the replacements as Tigers continue their quest for a place in the Guinness Premiership play-off places.
