Leicester Tigers fly-half joins exodus with move to France

Noel Reid has become the latest Leicester player to join the exodus from Welford Road by agreeing a two year-deal with French Top-14 side Agen.

The 30-year old, who played 120 games for Leinster across an eight-year spell with his home province, has also been capped by Ireland in 2014.

“I’m very happy to announce the arrival of Noel Reid at fly-half for Agen for the next two seasons!” Talent and experience!,” the Top 14 side’s chief Jean-Francois Fonteneau tweeted.

Agen were second-from-bottom in the Top-14 before the crisis brought at end to the season.  

Tigers have already lost Manu Tuilagi to Sale Sharks and Telusa Veainu to Stade Francais after they also refused restructured wage deals.
