Balmain agrees new Leicester deal

Prop Fraser Balmain has been become the third Leicester player this week to agree a new contract with the Aviva Premiership club.

Tigers' announcement of a new deal for the 23-year-old follows fresh terms for fly-half Owen Williams and lock Graham Kitchener.

Balmain has made nine starts for Leicester this term, with a further six appearances off the bench.

" Fraser has been doing a good job for us, especially this season, when we have been without some of our more senior players in the forward pack," Leicester rugby director Richard Cockerill told the club's official website.

"He is improving all the time, and, as a prop, he still has time on his side to continue that improvement.

"There is a very strong pool of front-rowers at the club, and I'm happy that Fraser wants to continue to be a part of that."
