Leicester Tigers feature in Trivial Fact of the Day

The injury to Dan Cole - like Martin Johnson, a product of my old school here in Market Harborough - means that Robert Kitson is obliged to write in the Guardian:
Remarkably, this will be the first time since March 1975 England have kicked off a championship game at Twickenham without a single Leicester player in their starting XV.
I foresee trouble.
