Fly-half Joe Ford returned to Premiership Rugby with Tigers in 2017/18 after playing for Championship finalists Yorkshire Carnegie.

After joining the Carnegie academy from Rishworth School, Joe helped England Under-18s to third place in the AER Championship in 2008 and then made his senior breakthrough at Leeds, scoring 18 of his side’s 28 points in a win over Leicester Tigers in the Anglo-Welsh Cup on his debut.

He had a year at Northampton Saints before returning to Leeds in 2012 and scored 109 points in 27 games, including a club record nine drop goals, in his first season back at Headingley.

A move to Sale Sharks followed before a third spell with Leeds starting in 2016/17 and a move to Leicester alongside younger brother George in the summer of 2017.
