HARTLEPOOL’S top rugby player Michael Young has spoken of his joy at signing for leading side Leicester.

The former West star has ended his eight-year association with Newcastle Falcons to agree a two-season deal with the Tigers.

The 22-year-old said: “I’m just really looking forward to it – Leicester are a massive club with big ambitions.

“They don’t just want to win things they want to win everything.”

Young has been selected for his third Churchill Cup tournament with England Saxons, who start their pool programme against the US Eagles at Northampton on Saturday evening.
