USA international Bryce Campbell has signed for London Irish ahead of the 2018/19 season, the centre having played 15 times for his country.
Campbell, 23, who hails from Indianapolis, was recently called up to the Eagles’ squad by head coach Gary Gold for summer Tests against Russia, Scotland and Canada.
Standing at 6ft 2”, Campbell has scored seven tries for his country and joins fellow compatriots Blaine Scully, Nick Civetta and AJ MacGinty in plying their trades in the UK. Helping the Eagles soar to a historic second consecutive Americas Rugby Championship title with over Uruguay in March, rugby is a sport on the rise across the pond.
Campbell makes the move to Irish from Colorado-based side Glendale Raptors, the hard-hitting back excited to be a part of the set-up at Hazelwood.
“I can’t wait to make the move to England and join up with my new teammates for pre-season,” said Campbell.
“I’m grateful for having the opportunity to play for London Irish and I’m looking forward to the challenge of helping the club achieve its target of promotion back to the Premiership next season.”
London Irish technical consultant Declan Kidney said: “We are looking forward to Bryce joining our pre-season programme in the middle of July following on from the end of the June international series, and the US domestic league season.”
