Leicester Tigers head coach Richard Cockerill has admitted that continuity will play a key part in his side's preparations for Saturday's Heineken Cup final against Leinster.
Cockerill, who was a Heineken Cup winner as a player in 2001 and 2002 said he will be keeping selection changes to a minimum following last weekend's Guinness Premiership final triumph over London Irish.
"Myself and Matt O'Conner have had a long hard look at selection," said Cockerill, as the Tigers prepare for their second Heineken Cup final in three years.
"I can't see us making too many changes to the team because the guys have done well.
"If you change and you break combinations then it affects you - if you don't change and you are a bit flat that affects you too.
"We haven't finalised selection yet but it will be pretty close to what we picked in the last few weeks."
One player will return for the Murrayfield showdown is Alesana Tuilagi. The Samoan wing had been serving a suspension for an off the ball tackle on Bath's Nick Abendonon during the quarter-final win at the Walkers Stadium
"Alex is what he is," added Cockerill. "He gives us that physicality. He'll come back into the 22. Whether he is on the bench or starting, we will have to see.
"He had a few weeks off - that doesn't help put he is certainly a threat."
The directors of ERC voted unanimously at a Board meeting to postpone all decisions including the release of further instalments of ERC's distributable central revenues to the six shareholder countries until 19 February next when the Board will meet again to reconsider the issue.
