REPORT | Springbok lock turns down Leicester Tigers move

Springbok lock Marvin Orie has reportedly turned down and offer to join Leicester Tigers.

According to The Rugby Paper, Orie has turned down a move to Welford Road and will instead head to Japan to play in the Japanese Top League.

Orie apparently caught the eye of Leicester management during a short-term loan with Ospreys late last year when he joined the Welsh side as a “medical joker” in October after being overlooked for the Springboks’ Rugby World Cup squad.

EDITORS PICKS:

Orie has three Test caps to his name having made his debut against Wales in Washington DC in 2018.

His last Test came against Argentina in Pretoria last year.
