Not surprisingly perhaps Michael Cheika keeps faith with the side that saw off Munster in the semi-final for tomorrow's showdown with Leicester Tigers in Edinburgh (5pm).
The injury to Felipe Contepomi sees Johnny Sexton retain his place at out-half while Isa Nacewa holds onto the number 15 shirt with Lion Robert Kearney, forced out of the Munster game with mumps, having to content himself with a place on the bench.

For his part Tigers coach Richard Cockerill makes two changes from the side that started against London Irish last wekend, with Alesana Tuilagi back from suspension to take over from Johne Murphy and Martin Castrogiovanni preferred to Julian White in the front row.
