Leicester Tigers have agreed on the signings of Tonga international Sione Kalamafoni from Gloucester and Ireland’s Dominic Ryan from Leinster.
Back-rower Kalamafoni, 29, and flanker Ryan, 27, will be joined by Joe Ford, 26, and Jonah Holmes, 24, who have been signed from Yorkshire Carnegie.
Fly-half Ford is the brother of Leicester’s England star George.

“It is now time for a new challenge in my career and I’m delighted to be able to sign for Leicester Tigers,” said Kalamafoni.
“It is obviously a big club with a lot of history and I’m looking forward to playing my part there.”
