Thomas Sourice is a 28 year old French flanker formerly of Toulon.  Luca Guillaume is a former trainee from Montpellier.  Joe Atkinson is originally from the same Hampshire club as Tim Rodber, so a fitting opponent for his any level Tigers debut, and currently is studying at Loughborough University.  He played in the World Champion GB sevens team alongside former Tigers Dante Mama and Sam Edgerly.  Henry Purdy is a former Wasps academy member, who actually scored a try for England Under-18s against the Tigers Academy at Welford Road last year.  He has played A league rugby for Wasps so is no stranger to this level.
