Nottingham have re-signed crowd favourite Joe Duffey on a two-year contract from Leicester Tigers.

The 28-year-old hooker spent five seasons with Nottingham before departing for the Tigers in 2009.

"I'm really happy to be coming back to Nottingham. It will be great to be back amongst familiar surroundings and I'm really excited," said Duffey.

"I am looking forward to Joe Duffey returning to us," added Nottingham director of rugby Glenn Delaney.

"Joe has been an outstanding player for Nottingham in the past and I am sure over the next two seasons he will give us plenty to be proud of again."

The Green and Whites return for pre-season training on Friday, 1 July, ahead of their first friendly with Hull in mid-August.

They will face Harlequins on Friday, 19 August and the club are expected to announce a home friendly to take place the following weekend.
