Leicesters Tigers have announced two international signings.

After agreeing deals to join Tigers, Sam Carter and Solomone Kata will call Leicester home from next season.

Carter, who joins from Ulster, is capped at Test level by Australia and previously captained the ACT Brumbies in Super Rugby.

Meanwhile, Kata makes the move to the East Midlands from Exeter Chiefs, after playing for Brumbies and already celebrating a decorated career in rugby league before his switch to union.

The Tongan is 28 years old and plays centre, with experience also on the wing.

Born in Tonga, Kata moved to New Zealand at 16 years of age, where he played at the Sacred Heart College. He has enjoyed international success in both rugby league and union, and continues to shine.

Sam Carter is 33 years old and plays forward, lock and in the back row, and has experience in clubs across the world.

He has represented Sydney University, ACT Brumbies, in Super Rugby and made his Test debut with the Wallabies.
