London Irish have added to their second-row resources with the signing of Samoan lock Dan Leo ahead of next season.

Leo arrives from Perpignan, having previously played for Wasps, and Brian Smith is looking forward to seeing him in action. "Dan Leo is a seasoned campaigner and will be a huge asset to our squad next season. He knows what it takes to win big games and titles from his time at Wasps and has a wealth of Test match experience. He's a big physical player comfortable at lock and across the back row. He adds further strength and depth to the pack and we're delighted to have him on board."

Leo, who has 34 caps for Samoa, added: "I'm excited to be moving back to England to join London Irish. I always enjoyed playing in the Premiership and I'm excited to go back to compete in that competition again. Irish are building nicely for the future it I'm looking forward to being part of it."
