Ireland International Set To Leave Leinster For Leicester Tigers

On the move.

Leinster centre Noel Reid looks set to leave the eastern province at the end of the current season and move to the Premiership with Leicester Tigers.

Reid has long been linked with a move away from the province in search of more game time, with the Irish Independent reporting today that a deal looks to have been done between the two parties.

Now 28-years-old and with just a singular Ireland cap to his name, the time is probably now right for Reid to move on and seek other opportunities. His versatility is said to be why Leicester are so interested, with more minutes likely to be guaranteed.

The Tigers will lose the services of Matt Toomua at the end of the season, and are also said to be in talks with Munster’s Jaco Taute.
