Ford set to extend stay at Leicester after helping them beat the drop

Mike Ford, the coach brought in to save Leicester Tigers' season in March, looks set to stay at the club. The 53-year-old, the father of England fly-half George Ford, was brought in as a senior 'coaching consultant' to assist head coach Geordan Murphy as Leicester faced relegation two months ago. Now the Tigers have preserved their Gallagher Premiership status - finishing 11th, 10 points clear of bottom club Newcastle - Ford is ready to extend his contract.
