Long-serving second-rower Louis Deacon is a Leicester man through and through, enjoying a benefit year in 2012/13 which included a sixth Premiership title of his career and a Legends Match at Welford Road attended by a crowd of 16,000.

Deacon captained Tigers against Maori All Blacks in November 2012 and passed 250 appearances for the club in 2012/13 but missed the run-in after suffering a shoulder injury.

He played in his fifth Premiership Final in 2010 but missed the Finals in the following three seasons with injury, despite being in some of the best form of his long and successful career each time.

His 200th start for Tigers came in the win over Treviso at Welford Road in January 2011 and he was an unsung hero in England’s Six Nations title win that year, starting all five games after a late call-up.

Captain of Tigers during the Rugby World Cup period in 2007, he has been club vice-captain since 2009/10.

Players’ Player of the Year in 2003/04 and again in 2007/08, Deacon was a member of the matchday 22 for Premiership and Heineken Cup Finals in 2009, in the squad for all three finals in 2007 and played in 2008 EDF Energy Cup Final.

After playing junior rugby with the local Syston and Wigston clubs, he joined Tigers Academy in 1997, made first-team debut as a 19-year-old in August 2000 and celebrated an England debut against Samoa in November 2005.
