Ollie Hoskins admits he has been impressed with the unity of the London Irish dressing room since making the switch from Australian Super Rugby side Western Force.

The English qualified 23-year-old jetted into the capital earlier this month as pre-season started with a bang under the Exiles’ new management team.

“Pre-season has been tough, but it’s been really enjoyable,” Hoskins told LITV.

He added: “We’ve been churning out a lot of sessions and running a lot so it’s been tough both physically and mentally – there’s a great bunch of blokes here and I’m enjoying it.”

Making 26 appearances for the Force, the former Australia Under-20 international believes he can bring a hard edge to the front-row.

Hoskins said: “I’d like to think that I’m a bit more dynamic than your typical tight head and I like to carry the ball as much as I can as well as doing my job at the set-piece.

“Hopefully I can bring some x-factor to the front-row.”
