London Irish trio ink new deals

London Irish have announced that Tom Fowlie, Theo Brophy Clews and Danny Hobbs-Awoyemi have all extended their contracts with the club.

The centres and prop hand the Exiles a boost as they look to avoid relegation from the Premiership.

Academy graduate Fowlie has made 14 appearances for the Exiles this term and underlined his credentials with a well taken try away to Newcastle Falcons in Round 5 of the Premiership.

Joining a number of London Irish players to have signed new deals in recent months, the former England age group international made his Premiership debut against Harlequins in 2014.

Developing into a quality centre, Fowlie is delighted to have penned fresh terms with his boyhood club.

"From the moment I joined London Irish’s academy, I have loved every minute of my time at the club," said Fowlie, who was part of Irish’s promotion-winning team of last season.

"London Irish is an ambitious, forward thinking club and I’m thrilled to be part of Nick Kennedy’s set-up at Hazelwood.

"I’ve enjoyed a good amount of game time this season and I’m keen to keep working hard to cement my place in the starting XV."

Excited to continue his journey with the men in green, Brophy Clews said: "London Irish is a club that I have wanted to be part of for a very long time and I’ve loved my time here so far.

"I feel a lot of loyalty towards the club and I’ve appreciated the opportunities that I’ve been given as well as the support of the coaches, medical team and the strength and conditioning department.

"There are a lot of great people at the club and I’m excited about my future here at London Irish."

Hobbs-Awoyemi added: "It was frustrating to get the injury only a few weeks into the new season, but my recovery is progressing well and I’m keen to get back out onto the field as soon as possible.

"I’m delighted to have committed my future to the club and I have a fantastic opportunity to continue my development with London Irish.

"I’m very excited about my future at the club and I’m aiming to come back stronger than ever."
