Transfer Rumours: Leicester Tigers set to unveil new defence coach

Leicester Tigers are set to fill their defence coach vacancy with a former employee of the club who served a six-month ban for gambling on European Champions Cup matches.

Leicester have shipped 292 points and 39 tries so far in the Premiership, the most of any team in the competition, and are badly in need of a defence coach to mend the holes in their defence.

Phil Blake was initially appointed as defence coach at the club in 2014. However, in 2015, Blake incurred a six-month ban from rugby for breaching RFU betting rules after placing eight separate bets on two Tigers games while he was coaching at the club.
