Leicester's Louis Deacon likely to be fit for Saracens tussle

Louis Deacon
Deacon missed the semi-final success against Northampton last week

Leicester Tigers lock Louis Deacon is expected to recover from an Achilles injury and be fit for Saturday's Premiership final against Saracens.

Deacon missed the semi-final win over Northampton but has trained this week and should play at Twickenham.

Meanwhile Matt Smith is favourite to replace the suspended Manu Tuilagi.

Dan Hipkiss and Billy Twelvetrees are also in contention but Smith is likely to move from the wing to centre, with Horacio Agulla coming in on the flank.
