With the 2023 Rugby World Cup on the horizon, Leicester Tigers will have a plethora of stars from across the wider squad involved in the fight for the Webb Ellis Cup.

Here we go over all the familiar faces you're likely to see and the nations they will be representing. 

Argentina - Julián Montoya

El Cápitan will lead out Los Pumas in Paris, the hooker a pivotal figure in an ambitious Argentina side.

Australia - Dan Palmer

The incoming scrum coach will be working as the Wallabies line-out coach throughout the World Cup before coming to join Dan McKellar's set-up at Tigers following the conclusion of the tournament.

England - Ollie Chessum, Dan Cole, George Martin, Freddie Steward, Ben Youngs

England have the highest number of Leicester Tigers representatives of all nations, with five players set to cross the channel to France. Dan Cole and Ben Youngs will begin World Cup campaign number four, having also represented their country in 2011, 2015 and 2019, whilst Chessum, Martin and Steward are looking to make an impact at their maiden outings on the world stage.

South Africa - Jasper Wiese

The abrasive No.8 is included in a hard-hitting Springboks squad looking to retain their World Cup title.

Tonga - Solomone Kata

The powerful centre, signed by Tigers over the summer, will represent the ʻIkale Tahi, having featured at both centre and on the wing in the side's warm-up matches.

Wales - Tommy Reffell

'Tommy Turnover' will be heading to his first World Cup, the back-row looking to make an impact as Warren Gatland's Wales aim for another deep run in the competition.
