Peter Betham signs for Tigers

Australia wing Peter Betham will leave the NSW Waratahs at the end of the Super Rugby season to join English club Leicester.

The powerful 26-year-old has played twice for the Wallabies, making his debut in 2013 and winning a second cap last year.

Betham was born in New Zealand but brought up in Sydney and had spells with the Brumbies and Melbourne Rebels as well as in New South Wales with the Waratahs.

“We have been looking to add to our strength in the back-three positions for next season and Peter is certainly able to do that,” Leicester director of rugby Richard Cockerill said on Monday.

“He is a big man at 6’4″, a powerful runner with good pace, and he has been playing some good rugby for the Waratahs as well as reaching Test status with Australia.”
