Leicester confirm Tuqiri signing

6:24 am on 3 November 2009

The English rugby club Leicester have confirmed the signing of Lote Tuqiri who will start training with the English Premiership champions this week.

Tuqiri hasn't played at all since the Australian Rugby Union cancelled his contract in July.

His contract with Leicester is likely to be short term because it's thought he's going to relaunch his league career with Wests Tigers next year.
