Leicester coach Steve Borthwick spoke in the run-up to the Challenge Cup quarter-final match where they will face Newcastle.
In it, the Head Coach was consulted by the Argentine center Matías Moroni and did not hide his words of praise: “He is very good, I was surprised how quickly he took the role of leader both in attack and defense.”
“He is a fierce competitor, you can see him on the court. He has adapted very well and that is to his credit as a professional,” added Borthwick.
Finally, the coach referred to Moroni’s relationship with the Tigers fans: “I think they have already seen how much it means to play in the Leicester Tigers for Matías.”
