Back-rower Guy Thompson moved across the Midlands in the summer of 2018 as he traded the black of Wasps for red, white and green at Leicester Tigers.

An aggressive ball-carrier with good footballing skills, Guy began his rugby career in the Gloucester academy but worked in recruitment as he played for Richmond before moving to Jersey and then returned to the Premiership with Wasps in 2013.

He made 100 appearances in five seasons with Wasps and was nominated for the Premiership Try of the Season for a score against Tigers at Welford Road in 2013/14.

He was the supporters’ choice as Newcomer of the Season in 2017/18 after 19 appearances, including a two-try man-of-the-match performance in the vital win at Newcastle in the closing stages of the campaign.
