Leicester Tigers have agreed a new deal with George Worth.

The versatile back, capable of playing almost anywhere across the back-line, has made 57 senior appearances since his debut towards the end of the 2015/16 campaign as a 19-year-old.

After playing 21 games, Worth is equal with second-rower and fellow Tigers Academy graduate Harry Wells for most appearances so far in the 2019/20 season.

Born in Peterborough, Worth attended Wymondham College in Norfolk before joining the Tigers Academy and went on to represent England during the 2016 Under-20s Six Nations.

Speaking about the renewed deal, Tigers Director of Rugby Geordan Murphy said: “George is a reliable, hard-working player who team-mates want to have in their side.

“He is a player we want representing our club and, equally so, a person we want as an ambassador for Leicester Tigers.

“There is no fuss with George, he gets stuck into whatever challenge is put in front of him and gets the job done.

“He’s in his fifth season of senior rugby at 23 years of age and that says it all really, given his leadership qualities and commitment to this club.

“We are excited to have George extend his current deal and remain a Leicester Tigers player.”
