Dream season: Jamie Gibson

Leicester flanker Jamie Gibson admits he had a dream season in 2013/14 and hopes to hand boss Richard Cockerill a large selection headache this year.

The 23-year-old played the second most matches at the club in what was an impressive debut term at Welford Road since moving from London Irish.

Gibson offered a great deal from number six and revealed it was a special year for him at the club.

"That was my fifth season in total and to come to a club with such history and ambition and to play so many games was the highlight of my career," the free-running back-row told the Leicester Mercury.

"It was more than I could have hoped and dreamed of. I will knuckle down and work hard and see if it can happen again.

"Guys like Steve (Mafi) and Tom (Croft) are back in the mix and I can improve my game just watching those players train.

"During the next couple of months, I will be trying to give Cockers selection headache.

"It was good to be involved with the England squad at the end of the season.

"It ended frustratingly but it is good to work with people from different clubs with different ideas."
