Denton Now A Tiger
Written by RockSport on February 14, 2018
Leicester Tigers have signed Scotland international David Denton for the start of the 2018-19 season.
Denton will join from Worcester Warriors for whom he has made 14 appearances so far during what will be a single season at Sixways.
The 28-year-old back row forward has won 36 caps for Scotland and has also played for Edinburgh and Bath.
“He is a top-quality player with a lot of experience at the highest level,” Tigers head coach Matt O’Connor said.
“He has a useful skill set in possession, he is a physical player, he is a good age profile for us and is just the kind of player we’ve been looking to add to our options in the forward pack.”
Denton – who won his first Scotland cap for 18 months when he came off the bench in Sunday’s win over France – joins Warriors team-mate Will Spencer and Wasps forward Guy Thompson in joining the Tigers for next season.
Leicester are eighth in the Premiership and have lost 10 of their past 12 games in all competitions.
