Leicester head coach Richard Cockerill foresees a thrilling climax in the race for play-off places.

The Tigers host Sale at Welford Road on Saturday and although they currently sit in the final play-off place - some six points clear of fifth-placed Harlequins - Cockerill is warning against complacency when the Sharks visit town.
Quins ensured a nervy finish to the season by beating Leicester 24-20 last time out and Sale, led by the mercurial Danny Cipriani, are also in with an outside chance of snatching a semi-final berth.
Cockerill said: "We have still got a semi-final spot to aim for and we were a bit disappointed with how we played at Quins in the last round.
"Sale Sharks have been doing well and are also potentially still looking at the top four in the table.
"It's going to be a tight battle for those places with just two rounds to play."
The Leicester cause will be lifted by the return of influential England lock Geoff Parling - and his fellow British & Irish Lion Tom Youngs is also restored to the front row.
