Leicester sign Agen back-row forward Luke Hamilton

Leicester have announced the signing of back-row forward Luke Hamilton from French club Agen.

Hamilton, a former Wales Under-20 international who previously played for the Scarlets and Cardiff Blues, will move to Welford Road this summer.

Leicester rugby director Richard Cockerill said: " We have been looking for another player to join our back-row options with Jordan Crane and Laurence Pearce moving on next season, and we are delighted that Luke has now agreed to join us.

"He can play across the back-row and gives us some good options there.

" He is a young man with some good experience in club rugby in Wales, and he has done very well in the testing environment of French rugby."

Hamilton, 24, will join a number of new arrivals at the Tigers next term, including international backs JP Pietersen and Matt Toomua.
