Hegarty happy to show his versatility

Bryce Hegarty says he is excited to be part of a Leicester Tigers squad in good form but knows there is still more work to be done to take the team where they want to be.           

The 29-year-old was a Super Rugby title winner with Queensland Reds before moving to Leicester and scored his first try for the club as Tigers continued their unbeaten run against Connacht last week.

“It is an exciting environment to be in,” he said. “The club has put a lot of work into being in this position, but no one is fooling themselves and we all know there is a lot more work to do.

“We are confident in what we are doing and want to be better each week.

“It is good bunch of guys with good level heads, the club is being led well, everyone buys into it and everyone will keep holding each other to account.”

Hegarty started at full-back in the win over Connacht before moving to fly-half during the second half of the Heineken Champions Cup game and also added two conversions and a penalty to his first-half try for a personal 12-point haul in the 29-23 victory.

“I enjoy playing in both positions and I prepare each week as if I could be playing in either of them,” he said.

“They are important and you need to be a leader in those positions and that is something I try to focus on. All I can do is prepare each week and perform my best in one of those roles.”
