Quartet on their way to Leicester

Leicester Tigers RFC

Leicester have announced the signings of Dominic Ryan, Sione Kalamafoni, Joe Ford and Jonah Holmes.

As revealed in TRP back in Januray, Tongan international Sione Kalamafoni will move to Welford Road from Gloucester while fly-half Ford and wing Holmes, the leading points-scorer and try-scorer respectively in last year’s Championship will, as revealed in March, will make the switch from Yorskire Carnegie.

Irish flanker Ryan is joining from Leinster where Leicester head coach Matt O’Connor used to be in charge.

He said: “Dominic wins collisions on both sides of the ball, and he comes from an environment that understands the narrative of winning.

“Joe is an experienced fly-half whose game-management is exceptional. He brings others into the game and in all his previous clubs has made the team tick at a high level.

“Jonah is a talented young player who knows where the try-line is, as his record shows. He has huge growth left in his game and we know he will get that development at Tigers.

“Sione is a strong and powerful ball-carrier from the back-row. That physical presence on both sides of the ball is something we have been looking to add to our squad.”
