London Irish bring in Scotland tight-head
ESPN Staff
March 25, 2014

London Irish have added to their front-row resources with the signing of tight-head Geoff Cross.

Cross joins from Edinburgh on a two-year contract and having won 28 caps for Scotland, London Irish coach Brian Smith is looking to utilise his experience.

"It is great to have a player of Geoff's talent and experience joining our squad next season," Smith said. "He is a genuine International tighthead who has performed exceptionally well in the recent Six Nations championship. We will have plenty of competition in the front row next season that will only benefit the squad."

Cross said: "Moving down to London Irish is a fantastic opportunity for me. Having met with Brian, discussed the vision of the club and seen the new training facility it was clear to see the intent the club has moving forward."

"Leaving Edinburgh was a difficult decision and I will leave with many fond memories, however I am excited to be moving to Sunbury and look forward to the challenge ahead."
