London Irish have signed New Zealand second row Bryn Evans from the Hurricanes on a two-year contract.

The 26-year-old is a mobile lock who made both of his appearances for the All Blacks as a replacement against France in 2009.

"Bryn is a huge addition to our squad for next season," said London Irish head coach Toby Booth, who believes Evans' experience will be a valuable asset to the team.

"His physical presence and capabilities around the field will hold us in good stead for next season.

"The experiences Bryn will bring from playing for the Hurricanes and All Blacks will no doubt rub off on the young players we have coming through at lock."
