Tigers academy player of the year in 2013/14, Charlie Thacker made his senior debut for the club in an Anglo-Welsh Cup tie at London Irish in November 2014 and also played in the win over Sale a week later at Welford Road.
The son of former Tigers hooker Troy Thacker and younger brother of hooker Harry, Charlie played for England in two age-groups and gained his first ‘A’ League experience during 2013/14 while still a pupil at Leicester Grammar School.
After earning England Under-18 honours, he was called into the squad for the 2015 Under-20s Six Nations, playing at centre alongside Leicester clubmate George Worth.
He ended the 2016/17 season on dual registration with Championship club Nottingham as well as playing for Tigers in the Anglo-Welsh Cup semi-final win over Saracens and making a Premiership debut. He added another five senior appearances in 2017/18.
