Armitage signs two-year contract at London Irish

DYNAMIC: Armitage

HAVING REJOINED London Irish at the start of the season in September, centre Guy Armitage has signed a two-year deal at the Madjeski Stadium.

The 21-year-old former England under-20 international had left the Exiles at the end of last season to join his England international brothers, Steffon and Delon, at the French giants Toulon but re-signed for Irish earlier this season and has been a regular feature in the team ever since.

“I have really enjoyed my rugby since I returned to London Irish from Toulon," said Guy.

“I have come through the ranks with a number of these players and enjoy playing with them week in week out.

"I look forward to pushing on as a player and with the club over the next few seasons.”

London Irish director of rugby Brian Smith added: "Guy Armitage is fast becoming one of the most dynamic power centres in the country.

“He’s a genuine Premiership player with the ability to go on and play for England like his two older brothers.

“Guy has forced his way into the starting team this season and if he keeps performing may well be considered for England’s summer tour of Argentina.”
