Scotland international back-rower David Denton joined 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 with 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.
He won the first supporters’ player of the month award in 2018/19 but then suffered a head injury in the win over Northampton at Twickenham in October and missed the rest of the campaign.
