New deal: Blaine Scully

Leicester have retained the services of international duo Gonzalo Camacho and Blaine Scully for next season, it was confirmed on Wednesday.

USA Eagle Scully has enjoyed a fine run of form for the Tigers both in the Aviva Premiership and Heineken Cup since joining on a short-term deal.

"Blaine has done very well. His performance at the weekend was outstanding in lots of ways," Richard Cockerill told BBC Radio Leicester.

"He made the [Jordan Crane] try with his footwork and offload. His ability to deal with Nalaga defensively and ability in the air was good."

Meanwhile, Argentina international Camacho has yet to play for Leicester due to a shoulder injury but director of rugby Cockerill sees his value.

"He has not played a game for us but he is a quality international winger," he said.

"He has had horrendous bad luck [with injury].

"In the marketplace where he is at, he is good value for money and we think we will get the best out of him."
