England international departs Leicester Tigers with immediate effect

The Board of Leicester Tigers announces that Rory Underwood has stood down from his role as Non-Executive Director with immediate effect.

Rory joined the Tigers Board in 2007 after having previously represented the club in a playing and coaching capacity.

He scored 134 tries in 236 first-team appearances for Leicester Tigers and is England’s record try-scorer, with 49 in 85 internationals. He toured with the British & Irish Lions in 1989 and 1993.

Awarded an MBE for Services to Sport in 1995, Rory was a pilot for 18 years in the RAF during his playing career and now runs his own management consultancy, Wingman.


Tigers Chairman Peter Tom said: β€œWe thank Rory for his service to our Board for the past thirteen years and all that he has given this club, on and off the pitch.

β€œOn behalf of all Board members and everyone at the club, including our supporters, I am extremely grateful for what he has given us and wish him well in the future.”
