London Irish have brought in back-row Tom Guest from Aviva Premiership rivals Harlequins ahead of next season.

Guest has been at Quins since 2005 but he has opted for a new challenge at the Exiles. Irish are also reportedly chasing ex-Gloucester back-row Luke Narraway and Kiwi fly-half Stephen Brett.

"I have been at Quins for 12 years and had a great time throughout. I'd like to thank all the coaches and everybody at the club, with a special mention to Collin Osborne who has been there for me since I was 18 and has done so much for me," Guest said. "It was a really hard decision to go, but I am looking forward to the next stage of my career and a new challenge at London Irish."

Quins boss Conor O'Shea said: "Tom has been one of Harlequins' great servants having recently celebrated his 200th game.

"I know he is committed to going out on a high this season with the club that will always be his. We would love to have kept Tom for his entire career but the nature of managing a squad within the imposed salary cap regulations involves both accounting for the players you already have and developing personnel within each position."
