Leicester Tigers have further bolstered their front row stocks with the signing of hooker Ross McMillan, adding to a trio of signings in the past few days.

Leicester announced the signing of prop duo Campese Ma’afu and David Feao on Thursday. The 31-year-old McMillan includes Gloucester and Northampton Saints among his previous clubs and worked with current Tigers forwards coach Mark Bakewell in a spell with Bristol.

He will work alongside club captain Tom Youngs, Australia international Tatafu Polota-Nau, Jimmy Stevens and young duo Jake Kerr and Harry Mahoney at Tigers.

Tigers head coach Matt O’Connor said: “Ross is a very experienced player and a good operator. Mark Bakewell knows him well from their days at Bristol and we believe he is a good man to bring into the camp.”
