New deal for Ojo

London Irish have announced a new two-year deal for their England international wing Topsy Ojo.

The 26-year-old has agreed fresh terms that will keep him at the Aviva Premiership club until at least May 2014.

Ojo, who has won two England caps, has scored 56 tries in 145 appearances for Irish. Last summer, he was part of the Churchill Cup-winning England Saxons team.

Irish head coach Toby Booth said: "Topsy has been a highly-consistent player for this club over a number of seasons now, and his commitment to the shirt and to his team-mates is second to none.

"He is a tremendous attacker with ball in hand and an outstanding defender.

"His try-scoring record for the club speaks for itself, and we are certainly very pleased that he has decided his immediate future is with London Irish."
