Skivington set for Exiles

London Irish have signed lock George Skivington from Leicester on a three-year deal.

The 29-year-old former England Saxons skipper, who has made 40 appearances for the Tigers over the last two seasons, will arrive at the Madejski Stadium during the summer.

"George is a powerhouse and a very physical player who will bring additional size and strength to our front five," said Exiles head coach Toby Booth. "His experience and success means that he brings with him not only a wealth of knowledge, honesty and hard work, but also a winning mentality."
