Leicester Tigers
Leicester Tigers hooker George Chuter says that he is "really excited" about his testimonial at the club next year.

Leicester Tigers hooker George Chuter has admitted his delight after it was revealed that the former England international will be handed a testimonial next year.

The 36-year-old, who recently signed a new one-year deal with the club, will complete his 14th season with the Tigers next year.

"I'm really excited about next year. I'd got it in my head that I was leaving and to then find out that I was actually staying was a relief in some ways and it was quite a strange situation," he told BBC Sport.

"I'm very pleased to be staying. I do hold a special place in my heart for the club."

Chuter made 24 appearances for his country.
