Leicester Tigers have announced that Welsh hooker Jim Richards will stay at the club on an extended loan, which is available until the end of the season.

The 27-year-old has been on loan from Newport for the past two months, making a big impact in his last three games by touching down two tries.

Tigers director of rugby Dean Richards said: "We've been delighted with his progress since he came to the club at the start of the season.

"He's a bit of a Richard Cockerill in many ways. He's very skilful and enthusiastic, so it's good news that he's signed."
