Leicester Tigers Director welcomes the two brothers to the club

The Director of Rugby at Leicester Tigers, Richard Cockerill has welcomed the two brothers Ben and Tom Youngs to the club.

Both have signed long-term contracts and are the kind of players they want to build the club around for the future.

"It is excellent news that both Tom and Ben have agreed new deals with us. They are both very important to the club.

"They have grown up in a Leicester Tigers family. Their dad Nick played for the club, they know the history of this place and they have come all the way through the academy system here before establishing themselves as key first-team players."
