NOTTINGHAM prop Michael Holford has joined Premiership
side Leicester on a short-term loan.
The 30-year-old former Tiger (pictured),
who most recently enjoyed a stint at Welford Road last season, has
been selected for Leicester's league meeting with London Wasps on
Nottingham's pack has worked strongly in Holford's absence this
week with Matt Shields and dual registered Tiger Ryan Bower pushing
their claims for a place in the Green and Whites starting XV.
Holford has been turned to as cover for a front-row that has
been stretched to the limit with five props potentially unavailable
through representative commitments, suspension and injury.
Dan Cole (England), Martin Castrogiovanni (Italy) and Marcos
Ayerza (Argentina) are all on international duty.
