Scott Hamilton and Marcos Ayerza return to the Leicester Tigers team for the Heineken Cup semi-final against Cardiff Blues at the Millennium Stadium on Sunday (3pm).

The Tigers have named six internationals on the bench, including Julian White, Harry Ellis and Aaron Mauger who makes his return to the matchday squad after injury.
Cardiff Blues coach David Young has made one change to the side to face the Tigers. There is one change from the 22 that defeated Toulouse in the quarter final and won the EDF Energy Cup in Twickenham a fortnight ago.
