Tigers out to win - Cockerill
Leicester's Richard Cockerill has warned Premiership final opponents Harlequins the Tigers are desperate to win at Twickenham.
The domestic rugby union season comes to a close at HQ on Saturday with a huge clash between Leicester and Quins, who topped the table by just a point from the Tigers at the end of the regular season. Having struggled in the early stages of the campaign with 12 players at the Rugby World Cup Leicester have hit form just at the right time, winning 14 out of their last 15 Premiership matches. The Tigers also proved to have the edge over Harlequins when the two teams met at the end of April, Cockerill's men coming out on top 43-33. While the Tigers director of rugby is an admirer of what Harlequins have done this season he says his team are totally focused on winning a 10th domestic title. "Quins are a good side. They have been top from the start and they have a lot of resilience. They have won big games. They are not shy of big-game experience and have quality players," Cockerill told BBC Sport. "We will treat them with respect but we are going to Twickenham to win." Cockerill has made just one change to his starting XV from the team that beat Saracens, with Julian Salvi back for Craig Newby at open-side, while George Ford starts at fly-half ahead of Toby Flood in Leicester's eighth consecutive final. Harlequins make two changes from their semi-final win over Northampton, with Danny Care and Ugo Monye returning to the team.
