Leicester will be hoping for some magic displays at Welford Road after recruiting Blake Enever and Harry Potter from Super Rugby.

Lock Enever, 28, represented his country twice in 2017, making his Test debut against England at Twickenham, and arrives from Brumbies.

England-born Potter was previously with Melbourne Rebels. The 22-year-old, who can play across the wing and centre positions, moved to Australia as a child.

Tigers head coach Geordan Murphy told his club’s website: “Blake is a strong addition to the club ahead of the new season and brings with him a wealth of experience from Super Rugby.

“He’s a big, physical and hard-working player, which is what we want in our pack, and someone our fans should be thrilled to see joining the club.”

Enever added: “Coming over to the UK and being a part of Premiership rugby while representing a club of Leicester’s standing is an exciting prospect.”

Murphy backed Potter to enchant Tigers fans and tipped him for an exciting future.

“Harry is a very talented young man who we are extremely excited about adding to our group here in Leicester,” said Murphy.

“At only 22, he has a promising future ahead of him in the game and we are confident he will only continue to improve in our environment, while adding to our club.”

Leicester were 11th in the Gallagher Premiership table when the season was suspended in March because of the coronavirus pandemic.
