Both Matt Cornwell and Alex Moreno will depart from Welford Road at the end of the season according to Leicester.

Centre Cornwell has stated his desire for more regular rugby as his prime reason for leaving the current Guinness Premiership champions. He started just three games this season.

Although it is unsure to which clubs Cornwell will go he has revealed he is in discussions about his future.

In order to play for England he has to stay in the Premiership. He states that he is not keen to go abroad but would take an offer.

Moreno admitted being disappointed to be leaving the Tigers. He is returning to Italy to play for Calvisano.

He stated that although he would prefer to stay it is not his decision and Leicester have the final verdict.
