Transfer News: Leicester Tigers confirm triple signing

Leicester Tigers has bolstered its backline with the signing of two international centres for the start of the 2019/20 season.

Jaco Taute, capped by South Africa, joins from Munster while Ireland international Noel Reid moves to Welford Road from fellow Pro14 province Leinster.

Meanwhile, second-rower Calum Green has agreed a move to Leicester Tigers from Newcastle Falcons this summer.

The 28-year-old Green has been among Premiership Rugby’s leading locks in recent seasons, particularly in his work at the set-piece.

Tigers head coach Geordan Murphy, welcoming Green’s signing, said: “Calum has played a lot of senior rugby with Carnegie and then the Falcons and has firmly established himself as a Premiership player.

“His stats have been particularly good at the lineout in the last couple of seasons and he is a real hard-worker in the forward pack.

“We think he will add a lot to the group here when he returns and we look forward to welcoming him back to Tigers this summer.”
