The branch provides a lot of work for Tigers at both their 26000 seat stadium and their training ground, and saw this as a way of strengthening the bond with the club.

Scotland international back-rower David Denton agreed a move to Leicester Tigers in the summer of 2018.

Born in Zimbabwe, Denton moved to Scotland as a student and played for Edinburgh Academicals before joining the national academy and was awarded a professional contract at Edinburgh in 2010/11.

He played for Scotland Under-20s and Sevens on his way to a senior Test debut in the build-up to the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

The big back-rower known for his powerful ball-carrying made a move to the Premiership in 2015, first with Bath and then with Worcester Warriors for the 2017/18 season before making a switch to Tigers.
