Leicester Tigers have signed dual code international Kyle Eastmond.

The 29-year-old began his rugby league career with St Helens before switching to the 15-man game at Bath in 2011.

Eastmond gained the first of his six England caps on the summer tour to Argentina in 2013 and joined Wasps in 2016.

"It's great to join a massive club like Leicester with a strong tradition. I'm very happy to be a Tiger," Eastmond told leicestertigers.com after completing his move across the midlands.

Leicester have also announced that Australia international Matt Toomua will return home in a bid to gain Rugby World Cup selection for the Wallabies.

Toomua has agreed terms with Rugby Australia and the Melbourne Rebels before returning to the Tigers for the remainder of the club's 2018-19 campaign.
