Leicester Tigers have revealed that Samoan prop Logovi'i Mulipola has agreed to prolong his stay with the club.

Mulipola arrived at Welford Road this season on a short-term deal and made his debut against Wasps in January. The Samoan international immediately became a favourite at Welford Road as he filled in for Dan Cole and Martin Castrogiovanni during the 2012 Six Nations.

Tigers boss Richard Cockerill has paid tribute to Mulipola saying: "Logo came here as an international with Samoa but with no experience of European rugby or professional club rugby. He has settled into the Leicester Tigers set-up very well and he is working hard with us."

The Tigers have also tied down fullback Niall Morris on a new deal. The fullback arrived from Leinster last summer and offers versatility across the back three.
