Leicester Tigers cast their net into Asia
Leicester Tigers are spreading their coaching net far and wide with the announcement of a Rugby Camp in Asia.
A team of coaches from the club are heading to Kuala Lumpur, in Malaysia, next week to meet young players and improve their rugby skills and enjoyment of the game.
Former Tigers Craig Newby and Glenn Gelderbloom will be among the coaches who will put more than 100 young players from the Royal Selangor Club, in Kuala Lumpur, through their paces.
Tigers' Rugby Camps have attracted thousands of young players throughout the local region, including several members of the current first-team squad in their junior days.

In recent years, they have also travelled to Jersey, Guernsey and the British School in the Netherlands.
Tigers community department manager Scott Clarke said the club were looking forward to spreading the word.
"Leicester Tigers is a name which is known throughout the rugby world and the Royal Selangor club have been very enthusiastic about welcoming us for this ground-breaking week.
"This is our first Rugby Camp venture into Asia, but there is such a lot of interest in Leicester Tigers from around the world that we hope this will be the first of many overseas events."
Closer to home, there is a programme of two-day and three-day Tigers Rugby Camps this month.
Events are based at Oakham RFC (Feb 11-13), Ashby RFC (Feb 14-15), Burton RFC (Feb 18-20) and Trent College, Nottinghamshire (Feb 21-22).
