Tigers sign Marfo on short-term deal

Leicester Tigers have signed Scotland international Darryl Marfo on a short-term contract. 

The loosehead prop made his Test debut in 2017 against Samoa at Murrayfield.

Marfo joins Tigers after stints with fellow Premiership clubs Harlequins and Bath, as well as most recently representing Edinburgh.

Speaking about the addition of Marfo, Leicester Tigers Head Coach Steve Borthwick said: “We are pleased to welcome Darryl to the club and looking forward to seeing what he can contribute in the Leicester front row.

“He is an international player who has experience in the Premiership and adds depth to our squad in the loosehead position.

“It’s important we continue to promote competitiveness within our ranks for places in the team.”

Marfo added: “I am extremely grateful for this special opportunity for me to be a part of Leicester Tigers.”

“Whilst I am here I am committed to doing everything I can, to contribute to the club being successful, in Steve’s mould.

“To do that I know I have to put the team first always and work as hard as I can every day that I am here.”

Marfo has joined the Tigers squad this week at the club’s Oval Park training ground.
