London Irish can confirm that Phil Cokanasiga and Olly Cracknell will leave the Club following the conclusion of the 2021/22 season.
Cracknell, who joined the Exiles from Ospreys in November as injury cover for Ben Donnell, has made 16 appearances and scored four tries in all competitions in the London Irish shirt.
“We thank Olly for his contributions since his arrival earlier in the season and wish him well for the future,” said Declan Kidney, Director of Rugby.
“He has been a great professional for the Club, both on and off the field.”
“I thoroughly enjoyed my time at London Irish and will always think back on my time here with fond memories,” said Cracknell.
“When I first joined Irish, I was searching for more game time. The coaches trusted me and allowed for that to happen, so I will always be grateful.”
Cokanasiga, who came through the Exiles’ Academy, has made 17 appearances and scored six tries during his time with London Irish.
“Phil has always represented himself and the Club with distinction during his time here,” said Declan Kidney, Director of Rugby.
“We wish him well with his future.”
“I want to thank all the staff and players for helping me with my rugby journey so far,” said Cokanasiga.
“London Irish was my first professional club, and it will always hold a place close to my heart.”
