Same Leicester Tigers starting XV for do-or-die Heineken Cup clash
Leicester Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill has given his side the chance to make amends for last weekend's disappointment by naming an unchanged side to face Ospreys tomorrow.
The same starting XV that suffered defeat at the hands of Toulouse will walk out at Welford Road against Ospreys in the second Heineken Cup fixture in Pool Two.
The only change is in the replacements, where long-serving second-rower Louis Deacon has recovered from a shoulder injury to join the squad.
Club captain Geordan Murphy misses out. The Irish full-back has still not fully recovered from a knee injury, which has seen him out of action since early September.

It means fellow Irishman Niall Morris keeps his shirt at full-back.
Tigers have not had the best of the recent encounters with Ospreys, losing three of the last four.
However, Tigers have not lost at home in this competition since October 2006.
Ospreys have also named an unchanged starting line-up from the one that beat Benetton Treviso 38-17 in their opening fixture.
Their only change is also in the replacements where back-rower Joe Bearman has recovered from a knee injury and comes in for Sam Lewis.
