Geordan Murphy shares his thoughts on the new recruits announced on Easter Monday, as well as the previously confirmed Jordan Taufua and current players to have extended their deals in recent months.

Murphy and Tigers treated their supporters to an Easter gift of three new additions to the squad, who will make the move to Leicester ahead of the 2019/20 season, on the now infamous Popcorn Days for their fans.

The new signings include Leinster back and Ireland international Noel Reid, Munster outside back and South Africa international Jaco Taute and last year's Premiership second rower of the year and Tigers academy graduate Calum Green - currently with Newcastle Falcons - as the latest to be confirmed as joining next season, joining Jordan Taufua from Super Rugby's Crusaders.

Murphy also chats about the recent announcement that seven of the club's up and coming stars have recommitted to the club with extended deals.

The head coach also previews this weekend's Gallagher Premiership fixture against Bristol Bears at Welford Road and discusses the return to action of Telusa Veainu, Gaston Cortes and Sione Kalamafoni after the international trio appeared for the Tigers Development XV in the Premiership Shield fixture away to Northampton over the Easter weekend.
