Trio signed by Leicester

Leicester Tigers RFC

Leicester Tigers have added three new players to their squad as Tongan international back Afa Pakalani, former Scotland international prop Kyle Traynor and young hooker Jake Kerr have all signed a deal at Welford Road.

Pakalani, 25, will link up with three other Tonga internationals – Telusa Veainu, Sione Kalamafoni and Valentino Mapapalangi – at his new club.

Traynor, 31, and Kerr, 21, both worked with the Tigers’ squad in pre-season.

“Afa is a good player in the back three,” said head coach Matt O’Connor. “He has played his first Test rugby this year and is a good age profile for us. We’ve been looking for a bit of depth in our backline options.

“Kyle has plenty of experience with Edinburgh and Bristol as well as playing Test rugby, while Jake is an ambitious young man who had some success in Scotland age-groups.”
