CONFIRMED: Freddie Burns completes Premiership return

Leicester Tigers will welcome Freddie Burns back to the club ahead of the 2021/22 season.

The 30-year-old, currently playing for Toyota Jido Shokki in Japan, returns to Leicester for a second stint at the club where he made 75 appearances between 2014-17.

Burns began his professional career with Gloucester in 2007 and made his Test debut in 2012 after representing England Under-20s and Saxons.

He joined Leicester in 2014 and scored 603 points for Tigers in three seasons, before moving to Bath Rugby ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.

The fly-half, also capable of playing at full-back, was voted the Supporters’ Player of the Year in the 2016/17 season, in which he helped lead the club to an Anglo-Welsh Cup title win.
