Leicester Tigers have brought in Waratahs winger Peter Betham ahead of next season.

Batham will arrive at Welford Road ahead of next season once his Super Rugby commitments have finished with the Waratahs. He has two caps for the Wallabies to his name and has also turned out for the Brumbies and Melbourne Rebels.

Leicester Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill said: "We have been looking to add to our strength in the back-three positions for next season and Peter is certainly able to do that. He is a big man at six feet four inches, a powerful runner with good pace, and he has been playing some good rugby for the Waratahs as well as reaching Test status with Australia.

"He'll join us at the end of the Super Rugby season and we look forward to seeing him settle here ahead of the new campaign."

Betham added: "I'm looking forward to joining Leicester Tigers at the end of my commitments in Australia. It was a decision that I did not take lightly, having thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Waratahs and its success in recent years.

"The opportunity to join a prestigious club such as the Tigers is very exciting and humbling. The Premiership is a great competition which will help develop me as a player while I endeavour to add and contribute to the Leicester Tigers team and community."
