Wasps v Leicester: Teams
At Adams Park, Sunday 15 February, live on SS2 & HD2, kick-off 5pm
Watch Wasps v Leicester live from 4.30pm on Sunday on Sky Sports 2 or HD2
Alesana Tuilagi and Louis Deacon return to the Leicester line-up for Sunday's Guinness Premiership trip to Adams Park where they face old rivals Wasps.
Samoan wing Tuilagi is back in action following a knee injury, while England international lock Deacon makes his first senior appearance of the season after overcoming a back problem.
Aaron Mauger captains the team, and George Chuter returns from England duty to claim a place in the front row, with Deacon joining fellow international Ben Kay at lock.
There is a place on the bench for prop Marcos Ayerza after his recovery from an arm injury, and Ben Youngs returns to the squad after playing in England's opening game of the U20 Six Nations Championship last weekend. Ayoola Erinle is also included in the matchday 22 against his former club.
Martin Corry's position among the replacements is subject to the outcome of an independent disciplinary committee hearing in Dublin on Friday.
Making his 17th appearance since joining the club at the start of the season, Serge Betsen will lead a side bolstered by the inclusion of England's Danny Cipriani, Simon Shaw and Tim Payne.
Joining Payne in the front row, Pat Barnard makes his return to action on Sunday after recovering from a neck injury sustained against Newcastle Falcons back in November. In the second row George Skivington, fresh from the England Saxons, joins Shaw, and Dan Leo and John Hart are named alongside captain Betsen in the back row.
Wasps' only defeat in their last four games in the Guinness Premiership came at Sale at the end of December, while Leicester Tigers have not won away from home in the Premiership since a 19-17 victory at Worcester in September.
The Londoners have won the last three encounters between the two clubs since Leicester's 34-24 win in the semi-finals of the EDF Energy Cup at Millennium Stadium, Cardiff, on 22 March 2008.
The Tigers have visited Adams Park on seven previous occasions and have lost only once, on their first ever visit in December 2002.
