Leo locked in at London Irish

London Irish have announced the signing of lock Dan Leo from French club Perpignan.

Leo, who has won 34 caps for Samoa, will join his current Perpignan colleague Luke Narraway in moving to Irish this summer.

The 31-year-old played in the 2007 and 2011 World Cups, while he spent a number of seasons with Irish's Aviva Premiership rivals Wasps before heading to France four years ago.

" Dan Leo is a seasoned campaigner and will be a huge asset to our squad next season," Irish rugby director Brian Smith said.

"He knows what it takes to win big games and titles from his time at Wasps, and he 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 are delighted to have him on board."
