McGrath leaves Welford Road

20 February 2004

Leicester Tigers have announced the departure of skills and defence coach Damian McGrath from the club.

The former Rugby League coach has been with Tigers since July 2002, and has recently been assisting the coaching of the England Sevens team, helping them in New Zealand and Los Angeles as part of the IRB Sevens series in the last few weeks.

Chief executive Peter Wheeler said: "This decision has been reached as part of our review. We thank Damian for his commitment and work with the club, and wish him well in the future."
