Tigers agree early release with Worth

Leicester Tigers have agreed terms with George Worth, allowing the back an early release from his contract.

The 24-year-old has made 62 appearances for Tigers since debuting in 2016.

Worth spent the 2021 Super Rugby season on-loan in Australia with the Rebels and returned to Leicester for pre-season training ahead of the 2021/22 Gallagher Premiership and European campaigns.

Speaking about the agreement with Worth, Leicester Tigers Head Coach Steve Borthwick said: “An opportunity has come up for George and, after discussions with him, we have chosen not to stand in his way.

“I’m grateful to George for his contribution to Leicester Tigers and, on behalf of everyone at the club, wish him well in this next chapter of his career.”

Worth added: “As a youngster I dreamt of playing for this club, so to have achieved over 60 appearances is something I am really proud of.

“I’ve seen tons of awesome people and players come and go, and now it’s my turn to move on.

“I am excited to be a Tigers fan again.”

Worth’s departure from Leicester Tigers is effective immediately.
