London Irish have completed the short-term signing of Noel Reid.

The fly-half arrives at the Exiles to provide injury cover for Rory Jennings, who has been ruled out for the remainder of the season following shoulder surgery.

Reid, aged 31, made over 120 appearances for Leinster during an eight-year stint with the Irish provincial side.

Midway through the spell, in 2014, he made his senior debut for Ireland, coming off the bench against Argentina.

He joined Leicester in 2019, before a spell with Agen.

Director of Rugby, Declan Kidney, welcomed Reid’s arrival, commenting: “We’re pleased to bring Noel into the squad following the injury to Rory.

“He’ll provide good cover at fly-half and 12, complementing the other backs we have in those positions.”
