Skivington to join Leicester from Wasps
Wednesday 14 April 2010
England Saxons captain George Skivington will join Leicester Tigers from London Wasps at the end of the 2009/10 season.
The 6ft 6ins second-rower has played more than 125 times for Wasps since making his debut in 2003 and has captained England Saxons during the last two seasons.
Skivington, 27, has established himself as an integral part of the Wasps line-up both at the set-piece and in his workrate around the pitch.
Leicester Tigers head coach Richard Cockerill said: "The second row is an area we have been looking at, especially as Richard Blaze has been out with long-term injury. George will certainly add to our strength in that area."
