• Toomua to join Tigers

    Wallabies utility back Matt Toomua will join the Leicester Tigers after next year's Vodacom Super Rugby tournament.

    The 25-year-old has earned 75 caps for the Brumbies and 23 for the Wallabies.

    'I’m very excited to be joining the Tigers,' said Toomua. 'It’s a great opportunity for me to be a part of such a successful organisation with such a proud history.

    'After meeting with Richard Cockerill and Aaron Mauger, I feel very fortunate to be able to further develop as a rugby player in such a great environment and hope to contribute to the club’s future success. I look forward to joining the club in 2016 and wish the team all the best for the current season.'
