He is a class act on and off the field.”   Scully said: “I would like to thank the entire Leicester Tigers organisation – players, coaches, staff and fans. I have had a wonderful two seasons there and will always have a special fondness for Welford Road.   “I will leave the club a better player, man and with mutual good will. I have made many lasting friendships and wish them all the best in the future.   “Currently, my focus is firmly on the conclusion of the Aviva Premiership season, where we hope to complete the campaign with a strong finish.   “Moving forward to the summer, the USA will have an intense competition schedule preparing for the World Cup in England. After a hopefully successful World Cup campaign, I will move to Arms Park to begin my first season as a Cardiff Blue.”
