McCaffrey moves on after two years at Tigers

Leicester Tigers can confirm that back-rower Lachlan McCaffrey has left the club.

McCaffrey, 27, joined Tigers from London Welsh in the summer of 2015 and made a total of 47 first-team appearances for the club, scoring five tries.

Ged Glynn, Tigers head of rugby operations, said: “We have some strong competition for places across the back row and extended our options there this summer with the signing of Sione Kalamafoni and Dominic Ryan in line with how Matt O’Connor wants the team to play going forward.

“It is important to get the balance right throughout the squad and we feel that allowing Locky an opportunity to play elsewhere would give him the chance to pursue a new challenge and give us some more flexibility around the squad.

“Locky has been a very good player for us since arriving from London Welsh and we wish him well for the future.”
