Leicester Tigers Snap Up Current Scotland International

On the move.

Scotland international David Denton has agreed a move to Leicester for the start of the 2018/19 season, joining from Worcester.

The back-row forward joined the Warriors from rivals Bath last May, but has now agreed a deal to move to the Tigers after just one season in Worcester.

The 28-year-old has 30 caps for Scotland since his debut in the build-up to the 2011 Rugby World Cup, and is part of Gregor Townsend’s current Six Nations squad.

Tigers head coach Matt O’Connor said:

“We’re delighted that David has agreed to come to Leicester. He is a top-quality player with a lot of experience at the highest level and we still think there is more improvement to come in his game.

“He has a useful skill-set in possession, he is a physical player, he is a good age profile for us and is just the kind of player we’ve been looking to add to our options in the forward pack. We look forward to working with him.”

Denton said he’s excited about the move.

“I’m really excited to be joining Leicester Tigers next season. The club has a rich and celebrated history as well as a squad that is very capable of winning more trophies over the next few years.”
