Leicester Tigers are saddened to learn of the death of former player Michael ‘Mick’ Walker, aged 81. Born in Leicester in January 1934, Walker made his Tigers debut at hooker in 1956 and totalled 216 appearances over the following decade. A joiner by trade, he emigrated to Australia, running a business in Perth for many years, then moving to Augusta, Western Australia where he helped to start the Rockingham Rugby Union Club off, becoming their first life member. Married to Sadie in 1961, they had two daughters and three grandchildren. Son-in-law Conrad Evans says: “Michael was a very proud Tiger, representing the club from 1956 to 1967. He always spoke fondly of the friendships and camaraderie created playing at the club and sometimes would reminisce about the great moments on and off the field, the Tiger legends that he played alongside and the great teams and opponents he played against.” Tigers pass on their condolences to friends and family.
