Leicester make six changes for Saturday night's heavyweight Aviva Premiership clash with Saracens at Welford Road (8pm).
Coach Richard Cockerill's hand is forced by international call-ups and injuries as the Tigers try to bounce back from last week's defeat at Harlequins.
Victory would see them leapfrog Sarries into second place and with Toby Flood away with England, Cockerill hands the reins at No 10 to George Ford.
Geordan Murphy is restored to the No 15 shirt in place of Mat Tait and he will skipper the team.
Up front Tom Croft is restored to the blindside in place of Brett Deacon and Ed Slater takes over from Louis Deacon at lock.
Saracens, who beat Exeter 31-11 in their first match at Allianz Park last week, make five changes.
Chris Wyles returns at full-back in place of Ben Ransom, and Richard Wigglesworth takes over at scrum-half from Neil de Kock.
In the pack Rhys Gill and Schalk Brits return to the front row in place of Mako Vunipola and John Smit respectively, and Alistair Hargreaves - in for Mouritz Botha - partners Steve Borthwick in the second row.
