London Irish is pleased to confirm that Peter Richards has signed a three year contract with the club.
The England scrum half is known in the Guinness Premiership and in Europe as a feisty, aggressive, try-scoring scrum half who poses a real threat from scrum and ruck situations.
This is 29-year-old Richards' second spell with the Exiles. He originally joined in 1996 as a development player and progressed quickly to the first team squad for whom he made 28 appearances before leaving to join Harlequins in 1999. He returned to Sunbury from Gloucester where he was first choice scrum half last season.
Peter has played for England at every level from Under 16 upwards. He excelled for two seasons with England Sevens and played in the Hong Kong Sevens in March 2005 which England won. He made his senior international debut against Australia in 2006 and has since been awarded a further seven caps, the most recent against France in the RWC 2007.
