Freddie Burns posts to Instagram as he leaves Leicester Tigers for the last time

Fly-half Freddie Burns has emptied his locker and left Leicester Tigers for the last time after being forced out of the club to make way for the incoming George Ford.

Walking into a media session this week, Burns was wearing one of his jumpers instead of branded training kit.

He cheekily asked: “Am I meant to be in Leicester kit? They took it off me.


“They took it off me quicker than they took my contract off me.

On his departure, Burns had this to say.

“It was disappointing, it was like the club deeming me not good enough,” said Burns


“Worse things have happened to better people. I’ve tried to crack on and not to clock-off early.”

And fans on Twitter and in the Leicester Tigers Supporters group on Facebook have voiced their sadness over the playmaker’s departure.
