Exiles snap up Lawson
London Irish have announced the signing of Scotland international hooker Scott Lawson from their Aviva Premiership rivals Gloucester.
Lawson, 30, who has won more than 30 Test caps and was a member of Scotland's World Cup squads in 2007 and 2011, has agreed a two-year contract with Irish.
Irish head coach Toby Booth said: "Scott is an excellent signing for London Irish, and he will bring with him a wealth of both Premiership and international experience. He is a reliable set-piece operator and lively in the loose. He is a fantastic addition to our squad."
