Ford to be Leicester's final fly-half

Teenager George Ford will fill the fly-half role for Leicester in the Aviva Premiership final against Harlequins at Twickenham.

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 on Saturday, 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.
