Leicester Tigers have agreed a new deal with Cameron Henderson.

The 23-year-old lock has made 32 appearances for the club since his senior debut in August 2020.

Henderson, who was a member of this year’s Scotland squad for the Guinness Six Nations, joined Tigers in the summer of 2020.

Born in Hong Kong, he was capped at age-grade level by Scotland and first selected in the senior national group following his debut campaign in Leicester.

Henderson spent a summer with Tigers Under-18s in 2017 before joining the Glasgow Warriors Academy and was selected in the Scottish Under-20s squad for the 2019 World Rugby Under-20 Championship.

Speaking about the new deal for Henderson, Leicester Tigers Interim Head Coach Richard Wigglesworth said: “Cam has shown a great work ethic and want to improve during his time at the club, which has helped him develop his game hugely.”

“He arrived at the club during the pandemic and has gone from strength to strength since then, and in recent time earned his chance to be a part of the side on a regular basis and also earned the call up to Scotland’s national squad.

“Cam is a popular member of the group and a part of the young group that will hopefully continue to drive Leicester Tigers forward long in to the future, together. I am really pleased he has been rewarded with a new deal at the club.”

Discussing the new deal, Henderson added: “It feels like we are really building something special at the club, with a strong young group of players, and being a part of that and contributing to that excites me.”

“I have really enjoyed my three years at the club so far and don’t want to be anywhere else, I want to continue to be a part of Leicester Tigers.

“I am loving every minute of playing regularly for the club and grateful to the coaching team, who have backed me, so I want to continue to progress and build on that.

“Leicester Tigers is the biggest club in England and it is quite surreal to be involved in a club like this; it is really special to represent this club and so to have the opportunity to extend my time here was an easy decision for me.”
