Josh Poullet and Scott Hall have been selected in Leicester Tigers’ XV to face Sale Sharks in the Premiership Cup on Saturday (November 13) at Mattioli Woods Welford Road, 3pm.

The Nottingham pair have been training with the Premiership outfit for the past couple of weeks, and have now been given an opportunity from the start.

Nottingham and Tigers signed a cooperation agreement back in August, which has seen the clubs linked through a unique performance partnership. The partnership includes cooperation on coaching resources, education and programme alignment, training and playing opportunities for players and pathway integration.

Tigers and Nottingham have enjoyed a long-standing, informal partnership for decades, with an impressive dual-alumni list of players to have represented both clubs including current players Tom Youngs, Dan Cole, Calum Green and Joe Browning.

Leicester are in Pool B of the Premiership Cup, along with Newcastle Falcons, Sale Sharks and Wasps.
