Tigers name 38 man Heineken Cup Squad

Tigers have today named their 38 man squad for selection during the 2012/13 Heineken Cup.  1 Change is allowed during the group stages with a further 3 available during the knock out stages, with the number of eligible players never exceeding 38 players. 22 of the players are forwards whilst scrum half takes up all the slack in the back line places with 4 being named.  Noticeable absentees are England Saxons prop Kieran Brookes, with Fraser Balmain being preferred, and Miles Benjamin who is out with a serious neck injury before even making his debut.
