Leinster's Noel Reid To Make Premiership Move At End Of The Season

Leinster have confirmed that Noel Reid will leave the province at the end of the season to join Leicester Tigers.

The 28-year-old back has played 120 times for Leinster since making his debut in 2011. He also won one Ireland cap in 2014.

"I’m very excited to be joining a club like Leicester, with its history and success in the game, and to become a Tigers player next season," said Reid.

I’ve enjoyed my time at Leinster and it will be sad to leave the club, staff and players at the end of the season, this place will always be special to me.

Reid has played at both centre and out-half for Leinster.

"I’ve been aware of Noel’s qualities for some time in a very successful Leinster set-up and I’m very happy to be able to bring him to Welford Road," said Leicester head coach Geordan Murphy.

“He is a natural footballer and a versatile player who has worked with top-class players at Leinster and Ireland.

“That experience will be very important to us over a tough and competitive season, and we look forward to seeing his influence within the squad here.”
