Leicester Tigers have confirmed that former England Under 20 international Calum Green will join the Gallagher Premiership club from rivals Newcastle Falcons ahead of the 2019/20 season.

Green has been with the Falcons since 2014 and has racked up over 100 appearances for the club since then including 93 games in the Premiership.

This will also be the second stint for Green with the Tigers after previously representing them between 2007 and 2012. He has also represented Nottingham and Yorkshire Carnegie in the past while representing England U20 during the IRB Junior World Cup where his side finished fourth.

“Leicester is where my career started and to have the opportunity to return was too good an opportunity to let go by," said Green.

“I know a lot of the players in the squad, coaches and staff and am excited to get back to Welford Road and be called a Tiger once again.

“Geordie is so passionate about the club and I’m looking forward to working under him and alongside the playing group in getting Tigers back to the top.”

Meanwhile, Leicester Tigers head coach Geordan Murphy was pleased with Green's inclusion in the squad for the next season.

"Calum has played a lot of senior rugby with Carnegie and then the Falcons and has firmly established himself as a Premiership player.

“His stats have been particularly good at the lineout in the last couple of seasons and he is a real hard-worker in the forward pack.

“We think he will add a lot to the group here when he returns and we look forward to welcoming him back to Tigers this summer.”
