Leicester Tigers have confirmed that flanker Tommy Reffell has penned a new deal with the Gallagher Premiership.

The 19-year-old graduated in Leicester Academy and made his debut for the club during the Anglo-Welsh clash against Bath Rugby in November 2017. Since then he has made seven senior appearances for the club.

He has also represented Ospreys U16 and captained Wales at Under 18 and Under 20 levels in the past.

“Since moving here, representing this club at the highest level has always been the goal for me," he said to the official website of the club.

“Tigers took me in at an early age as one of their own and made me into the person I am now.

“Welford Road is one of the best club rugby venues in the world, with such great history and I want to continue to try and do that whenever I get the chance.

“This squad is behind Geordan [Murphy] and we need to make sure that we are all doing what we can to make sure the club is successful.

“There is a good mix of players here at Tigers, with a lot of world class players to model yourself on and a good group of young players getting their chances, which I want to continue to be a part of that.”

Leicester Tigers are currently positioned 10th in the Gallagher Premiership table with six wins from 16 games and will host Northampton Saints next in round 17 on Friday.
