Fly-half Williams staying at Leicester Tigers

Fly-half Owen Williams has ended speculation on his future by agreeing a new contract to stay with Leicester Tigers.

Williams, 22, joined Tigers from the Scarlets in the summer of 2013 and has now topped 300 points for the club.

Leicester Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill said: "Owen has done an excellent job for us since he came here 18 months ago and I'm delighted that he wants to stay in the longer term and has now agreed a new contract.

"He has settled very well here and has gained experience of some massive occasions with Tigers both in Aviva Premiership and in Europe during the last two seasons.

"Owen has shown a great attitude to his work, and he is learning and developing his game all the time in a very tough environment which says a lot about him.

"We have two very good, young and ambitious fly-halves in Owen and Freddie Burns, which can only be good for them as players and also for the team as a whole."

Williams started games in the knockout stages of both Premiership and European Cup in his first season with the Tigers, ending 2013/14 as the club's top points-scorer with 187 in 16 starts and eight appearances from the bench. He has added another 135 points so far this season in another 17 appearances.
