Leicester Tigers can confirm the signing of Sam Wolstenholme on a short-term contract.

The scrum-half joins Leicester Tigers after having previously played for Wasps, where he made 30 appearances, who he joined from Yorkshire Carnegie ahead of the 2019/20 season.

Wolstenholme attended Oakham School before furthering his studies at Loughborough University, while still a member of the Yorkshire Academy, and spent time on loan with Hull Ioanins while playing for Carnegie.

Speaking about the addition of Wolstenholme, Interim Leicester Tigers Head Coach Richard Wigglesworth said: "Sam is an exciting addition to our group and we're confident he will add depth to our scrum-half ranks as well as competition for places, which is a really positive thing."

"He knows the area and the importance of Tigers to it, after attending school and university locally, and is a young man with a lot of potential and growth in his game.

"Sam also has experience in the Premiership and Europe, which is of great value and we're looking forward to seeing him commence with the squad."

Wolstenholme joins Leicester Tigers effective immediately.
