LIST | 5 players Leicester could sign following 21 departures

Adam Thompstone and Australia international Tatafu Polota-Nau are among eight further players who will depart Leicester Tigers at the end of the season.

EW Viljoen and Joe Thomas are the other two backs moving on, while Will Spencer, Gaston Cortes, Sione Kalamafoni and Owen Hills will also leave Welford Road when the season ends.

Todays announcement takes their total number of leavers to 21.

Here we look at five signings the Tigers may make to strengthen ahead of the 2020/21 Premiership season.

1. George Kruis

A decade after his debut for Saracens, the 29-year-old Lion from Guildford is understood to be considering a career move to the Far East, having been there last autumn for the World Cup. 

However, if the Tigers could convince Kruis to remain in the Gallagher Premiership and come to Welford Road, he would make their line-out imperious.

A game-changer.
