NORTHAMPTON SIGN TONKS

Northampton have added Leicester full-back Greig Tonks to their squad for next season.

The 20-year-old, who came through the academy at Welford Road, has been on loan at Nottingham, but played in the LV= Cup for the Tigers.

“It’s a good opportunity for me to be involved in a growing club that has proved itself this season,” said Tonks.

“They’ve been playing exciting and intelligent rugby, which will be good to be a part of.”

He added: “They’ve got a squad full of quality players, but I’m looking at that as healthy competition and I’m going to give it the best shot I can.

“Hopefully I’ll have a good pre-season, get involved in a few games and take it from there.”
