“Gutted” – Leicester Tigers confirm star player will depart at the end of the season

Leicester Tigers can confirm No.8 Jasper Wiese will finish up his time with the club at the end of the 2023/24 season.

Wiese joined the club ahead of the 2020/21 season, becoming an instant fan-favourite, and added South African international and Rugby World Cup winner to his résumé during his Tigers tenure.

Player of the Match in the 21/22 Gallagher Premiership Final victory over Saracens, Wiese will continue his career overseas.

Speaking about his time at the club, the 28-year-old said: “I’ve loved every minute of my time at the club and will continue to give my all for my team and my teammates.”

“This is a special place for me and my family, and we have a lot more memories to create this season.”

Leicester Tigers General Manager Richard Wilks added: “We’re immensely proud of Jasper and the player and person he’s become at Leicester Tigers. Jasper joined us as a relatively unknown back rower from the Cheetahs and will leave us a 27-times-capped Springbok and a Rugby World Cup winner. This is testament to the hard work by Jasper but also the coaches and staff at Tigers who deserve huge credit.”

“Jasper is a popular member of our group, and we’ll miss him at the club, but the nature of professional sport and our global game means players grow and seek new opportunities and he’ll leave us with our best wishes and he and his family will always be welcome at the club.

“Our squad is in a healthy place for beyond this season and our focus, and Jasper’s, is on making this a special year for Leicester Tigers.”
