Leicester Tigers have announced a host of new contracts with Ed Slater, Louis Deacon and Anthony Allen all extending their time at Welford Road.

All three have played integral roles in Leicester's charge to the play-offs this season and alongside their new deals, the Tigers also announced new contracts for David Mele, Blaine Scully, Adam Thompstone and Gonzalo Camacho.

Tigers boss Richard Cockerill said: "Continuity is always important in our squad and we like to keep the core of players together so they can work and develop together. Ed Slater has had an outstanding season while Deacs and Anth Allen are among the most experienced leaders in the group and we're delighted to agree new deals with all three of them. They are very important to the squad, on and off the field.

"Adam Thompstone and David Mele have settled very well at the club and were very keen to extend their contracts while Blaine Scully is developing all the time as a player and we want him here for the longer term. Gonzalo has been very unlucky with injury but he wants to stay and we look forward to seeing him in a Tigers shirt.

"With a few new signings for next season too, we've done a lot of work to assemble a strong squad again and we look forward to working with them."
