Nottingham Rugby Club have signed centre Joe Cobden from Leicester Tigers on a one-year contract.

The 19-year-old is the younger brother of current Green and Whites centre/wing Jack Cobden.

Director of rugby Glenn Delaney said: "He is a very exciting player and will bring added depth and to our back line being able to play in many positions.

"I believe Joe will fit very well into our club and having Jack here will help with his transition to Nottingham."

Cobden, who is an England Under-16 and Under-18 conference squad member, made his first-team debut for the Tigers in an LV= Cup tie against Leeds Carnegie in 2009.
