London Irish has strengthened its front row options with the signing of Italy international prop Giosue Zilocchi, who joins the Club with immediate effect.

The tighthead prop has 16 Italy caps to his name, the most recent of those coming in the 2022 Six Nations campaign.

“We are delighted that Gio has agreed to join the Club and look forward to seeing him get going in a London Irish jersey,” said Declan Kidney, Director of Rugby.

“Gio, although only being 25 years old, has experienced a lot of international rugby that will only help him in the next stage of his career.

“We look forward to seeing him develop with us here at Hazelwood.”

“Joining London Irish is a great opportunity for me, and I am very excited to help the team wherever possible,” said Zilocchi.

“The team have been playing some brilliant rugby this season and it feels like they are heading in the right direction. I’m looking forward to pulling on the London Irish shirt!”
