Transfer News: Leicester Tigers star leaves after just one season

Leicester Tigers winger Nick Malouf has returned to the sevens game after just one season at the Aviva Premiership club.

The 25-year-old has reportedly turned down deals to play in Europe to return to his native Australia and sign for the national sevens team as he bids to win at gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics.

Malouf, who scored six tries for Tigers this season in 21 appearances, said: “The time was right to move back to Australia and with the results you’ve seen this year, I’m incredibly motivated to help contribute to the growth and success of the Sevens program over the next few years as the team builds towards Tokyo.”
