Leicester Tigers are one of the biggest clubs in the world and it is hard for any rugby player to reject a chance to play in a historic club like Tigers.
However, there have been some truly world class rugby stars s who have rejected the opportunity to ply their trade at Welford Road.
1. Damian McKenzie
The All Blacks star was reportedly in ‘advanced talks’ with Tigers over a proposed move in 2017 according to The Rugby Paper. When asked about the transfer, the 22-year-old avoided the question, which only fuelled speculation, but the deal was never complete with McKenzie eventually signing a new deal to stay in New Zealand.
