Leicester Tigers have agreed terms with Luke Wallace, allowing the back-rower an early release from his contract with the club.

The 30-year-old joined Tigers from Championship club Coventry during the postponement period of the 2019/20 campaign and made his Leicester debut in the first round of the resumed season away to Exeter Chiefs in August 2020.

Wallace has made 16 senior appearances for Tigers and scored one try.

Speaking about his time at the club, Wallace said: “I’ve enjoyed this period at Leicester Tigers and am grateful to Steve [Borthwick], the coaches, staff and players, as well as the supporters, for welcoming me in the way they did.”

“It has been a great experience and I am proud to have represented Tigers and take away some great memories and friendships from this time in Leicester.

“I wish the club all the best for the future.”

Leicester Tigers Head Coach Steve Borthwick added: “We’re all grateful to Luke for what he brought to our club and his contribution on and off the pitch as a Leicester Tigers player.”

“He is a hard-working player, who has also been an experienced voice in our changing room for a young Tigers squad and, on behalf of everybody, I wish Luke well in his next chapter.”

Wallace leaves Tigers immediately to join Harlequins for the remainder of the 2020/21 campaign.
