LIST | Five senior Leicester Tigers players set for exit in big overhaul

Leicester Tigers are set for a significant overhaul of their playing squad that will end in at least five senior players leaving, RUCK understands…

1. Jonny May

May is yet to agree to terms with the Tigers for beyond his contract which ends in June because we understand he is reluctant to take a pay cut of around £100,000 a year.

Tigers want May, 29, to stay at Welford Road but Steve Diamond’s Sharks, who are looking to replace Chris Ashton after he joined Harlequins, are circling, according to The Rugby Paper.
