2007 World Cup

Aviva Premiership club Leicester have announced the appointment of England international hooker Tom Youngs as club captain for next season.

Youngs, 29, has made more than 100 first team appearances for the Tigers, in addition to winning 28 England caps and featuring in the British and Irish Lions Test series against Australia three years ago.

“Tom is a Leicester man through and through and has special links with the club, where his father and brother have also played. He is a world-class player who leads by example,” Leicester rugby director Richard Cockerill told the club’s official website.

“Tom is supported by a good strong group of leaders within the squad, including Ed Slater, who has done an excellent job as club captain over the last couple of seasons, and experienced players like Mathew Tait, Dan Cole, Tom Croft, Manu Tuilagi, Ben Youngs, Owen Williams and Freddie Burns.”
