O'Connor named Tigers backs coach

Leicester Tigers have appointed Australian Matt O'Connor as their new backs coach.

The 37-year-old, who has coached Super 14 side ACT Brumbies and Australia A, joins newly-appointed head coach Heyneke Meyer at Welford Road.

"It was a great honour to be asked to be part of such a successful culture as Leicester Tigers," said O'Connor.

"I am looking forward to working with such an exciting collection of back-line players."


O'Connor played as a centre with the Canberra-based Brumbies but has also had a spell in Japan and rugby league.
