Leicester Tigers sign Glasgow Warriors’ Scotland international Rory Hughes on loan for the remainder of the season.

Hughes will be key in the back three, either as a winger or full-back, and Tigers’ head coach Geordan Murphy  sees him adding a “different dimension” to that department of  Leicester  Tigers team.

The Tigers boss said: “Rory is a quality outside-back, who adds a different dimension to our side and vital depth as we go into the second half of the season.

“He is an international, with experience in the PRO14 and we’re excited to see what he can bring to our group.”
