Injury News: Manu Tuilagi remains sidelined

Kyle Eastmond and Adam Thompstone return to Leicester’s backline for the Premiership visit of bottom side Sale.

Manu Tuilagi misses out with a leg injury while Thompstone replaces Jonah Holmes, who drops to the Tigers’ bench.

Leicester also hand Ben White a first Premiership start of the season as England scrum-half Ben Youngs drops to the bench following a knock in the defeat by Worcester last Sunday.

Youngs and Tuilagi both missed England’s training camp in Bristol this week as a precaution.
