Head coach Matt O'Connor began a second stint at Leicester Tigers this week following his arrival from Australia.

O’Connor takes over team affairs with four rounds of the Aviva Premiership season remaining, beginning against Bath Rugby at Twickenham Stadium this Saturday, after receiving the necessary visa paperwork on his move back to the club.
Working alongside the coaching team of Geordan Murphy, Richard Blaze, Brett Deacon and Boris Stankovich, O’Connor will have his first game in charge on Saturday at the venue where he celebrated an Aviva Premiership title win in his last game with the team in his first spell 2013.
“Matt has been proactive,” said assistant coach Murphy. “He has been highly involved this week, he has been watching the footage, we’ve been in touch regularly, he knows what is going on. He knows the players and now he’s here he’ll have his bits to say and we crack on with a big game at Twickenham on Saturday.”
