Leicester Tigers prop Fraser Balmain has extended his Leicester Tigers contract.

Balmain, 23, has shone this term starting nine games as the Tigers battled a lengthy injury list which included at times tight-heads Dan Cole and Logovi'I Mulipola. Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill said: "Fraser has been doing a good job for us, especially this season when we have been without some of our more senior players in the forward pack.

"He is improving all the time and, as a prop, he still has time on his side to continue that improvement. There is a very strong pool of front-rowers at the club, and I'm happy that Fraser wants to continue to be a part of that."

Balmain's re-signing is the third in as many days as he follows Owen Williams and Graham Kitchener in penning new Leicester deals.
