London - English club Leicester Tigers have completed the signing of Crusaders back rower Thomas Waldrom.

According to the Leicester Mercury website, the 26-year-old No 8 was the Super 14 outfit's player of the year last season and is currently with Todd Blackadder's squad for the 2010 tournament.

He is expected to finish his commitments with the seven-time Super 14 champions Crusaders before heading north.

The man nicknamed 'Thomas the Tank Engine' said he was looking forward to the move.

"While the results and trophy cabinet speak for themselves, everyone I have spoken to can't speak highly enough about the structures, coaching and facilities in Leicester," he said.

"Knowing that people I trust viewed the club in that light made my decision so much easier.

"While I still have a massive job to do here in Christchurch, the whole family is looking forward to the challenges moving to Leicester will bring."
