Sports Mole previews Leicester Tigers' final game of the Aviva Premiership season against London Irish.

Leicester Tigers will be hoping to seal a home playoff when they face London Irish in the final round of fixtures of the Aviva Premiership season tomorrow.

Anything but a heavy defeat will ensure that the Tigers play at Welford Road in next week's semi-finals.

Geordan Murphy and Martin Castrogiovanni both return to the starting lineup for Leicester, while Vereniki Goneva comes in on the wing.

Meanwhile, George Skivington will captain the Exiles, who have the poorest away record in the league this season.
