Lewis Moody worried by lack of leaders at Leicester Tigers

Former Leicester Tigers flanker Lewis Moody admits that he is concerned by a lack of leaders at the club.

Lewis Moody has admitted that he is concerned by a lack of leaders at former club Leicester Tigers.

The Tigers, who struggled for wins at the start of the campaign, currently sit just outside of the playoff places in the Aviva Premiership table.

While four consecutive victories in the past month have boosted Leicester's chances of finishing in the top four, Moody is worried that there are not enough big-game players at Welford Road.

"Where Leicester are as a club at the minute is a long way off the glory days," he told Sports Mole. "There are certainly concerns about Leicester at the minute.

"I hope they can manage that and I hope they can sort it out because they've got some great guys down there - my old playing colleague Geordan Murphy is now on the coaching staff. They need a few new signings on the board, a few more leaders, because they've been missing that.

"Leicester have always had a group of leaders. There's never been one guy that you've been reliant on. They've lost a few players through retirement, or moving to other clubs, and it's been tough for them. I'm sure they'll push hard towards the end of the season."

Moody won a wealth of major honours with Leicester between 1996 and 2010.

During this interview Lewis was taking part in the City Index Celebrity Trader Challenge. Find out more at:
