Tom Croft set for surprise Leicester Tigers return
Leicester Tigers flanker Tom Croft could return from injury as early as next weekend's visit of Gloucester in the Aviva Premiership.
The 27-year-old has not played since leaving The Stoop on a stretcher last April after a mistimed tackle on Harlequins' Nick Easter.
Croft had surgery on his neck and the latest estimate of his return to the pitch was put at mid-January by Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill, when speaking about his squad in October.
Cockerill now believes, he is well on track to return ahead of schedule.

"Tom is probably a week away and that is good news for us," he said.
"It will be a slow integration and we will have to look after him. He hasn't played for eight months and we are conscious of that."
