Just learned that Steve Booth has died at the age of 42. Those who remember him from the Belle Vue days will remember a real talent we were lucky to have at the club

RIP, far too young at that age to die. I recall his runs out of defence with a fond memory, as others have said a precocious talent.

Steve Booth: Leicester Tigers pay tribute to former player who has died aged 42.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/49345942

Leicester Tigers head coach Geordan Murphy has paid tribute to his former team-mate and "real entertainer" Steve Booth, who has died aged 42.

Booth won two Premiership titles and helped Tigers claim back-to-back European Cup triumphs during his four years at Welford Road.

He went on to have a season with Premiership rivals Bath in 2005.

"Steve was a big personality in a dressing room full of big personalities," said Murphy.

"He came in from rugby league but settled in quickly and he played the best rugby of his career at Leicester in a very successful team.

"He was a real entertainer on the pitch and will be remembered as someone who could score tries out of nothing.

"We were shocked to hear of his passing and, on behalf of everyone at Tigers, pass on condolences to his partner and their family and friends."

Bath, as well as a number of his former team-mates, also posted a message of condolence on social media.

Booth, who played rugby league for Huddersfield and Doncaster before switching rugby codes to join Leicester in 2000, went on to work as part of BBC Radio Leicester's commentary team and founded a digital design company after retiring as a player.
