Ben Youngs is ready to make his first appearance for Leicester Tigers since playing for England in the summer.

England international Ben Youngs will make his comeback for Leicester Tigers against Sale Sharks on Friday.

The scrum-half has been missing since appearing in his country's summer tour of South Africa.

Director of rugby Richard Cockerill is also preparing to welcome back Manu Tuilagi as well as Boris Stankovich, George Chuter and Scott Hamilton.

"Ben Youngs is fit and will play some part in Friday's game," said Cockerill.

"Manu Tuilagi is fit and Hamilton is recovering from a thigh strain. Hopefully, he will be in the mix for Friday too.

"Stankovich is fine now and, hopefully, Chuter will be good to go as well. Dan Bowden came off on Saturday after a bang to the ribs but he should be fine."

The Tigers currently sit fourth in the Aviva Premiership.
