Shoulder injury: Jordan Crane

Leicester have suffered yet another injury blow following their defeat to Ulster after Jordan Crane sustained damage to the AC joint in his shoulder.

The number eight is set to miss their final two Pool games in the LV= Cup with the issue and isn't alone in being on the treatment table.

According to the Leicester Mercury, full-back Mathew Tait has a back problem while second-row Graham Kitchener is out with a knee injury.

Meanwhile, wing duo Miles Benjamin and Niall Morris could miss extended periods of action, with the former struggling with his knee while Morris suffered a thumb injury against Ulster.
