Richard Wigglesworth is set to make his 300th Premiership appearances as Leicester Tigers host Bristol Bears at Mattioli Woods Welford Road.
The 37-year-old, who was left out against Worcester Warriors last weekend, has been named among the replacements by head coach Steve Borthwick – who is Wigglesworth’s nearest rival in the all-time Premiership appearance list with 265 for Saracens and Bath.
“To make 300 appearances in a competition like Premiership Rugby is an incredible achievement,” said Borthwick.
“Richard has reached this feat through his determination and hunger to want to be the very best he can be and the high standards he sets himself as a professional player. It has been a great privilege for me to witness his hard work up close, first as a player and now as a coach.”
The visit of Bristol Bears will also see Julian Montoya make his long-awaited return from a hamstring injury, with the newly-appointed Argentina captain named among the replacements.
