Ford set for fly-half role
George Ford will fill the fly-half role for Leicester in Saturday's Premiership final against Harlequins at Twickenham (kick-off 3pm).
The 19-year-old played a key part in Tigers' semi-final victory over Saracens after being called up as replacement for ankle injury victim Toby Flood.
Flood has been named on the bench this weekend, which is a positive sign for England head coach Stuart Lancaster prior to next month's three-Test South Africa tour.
Leicester show a solitary change following the Saracens success, with fit-again flanker Julian Salvi returning to the back-row alongside Steve Mafi and Thomas Waldrom.
England internationals Ugo Monye and Danny Care have recovered from injuries to line up for Harlequins.
Both players missed the narrow semi-final victory over Northampton a fortnight ago when Quins booked their first Premiership final appearance at Twickenham.
Care will partner Nick Evans, this season's players' player of the year, at half-back, while Monye forges the back-three combination alongside Tom Williams and Mike Brown.
