Nick Phipps has put pen to paper on a contract extension with London Irish.
The Australian scrum-half - who joined the Club ahead of the 2019/20 season - has agreed a new deal to extend his stay with the Exiles.
The 32 year-old, who has over 70 caps for the Wallabies to his name, has made 39 appearances for the Exiles to date - and he’s excited about what the future holds for London Irish over the coming years.
“I’m chuffed to bits to agree a new deal” he said.
“This is a really special Club and as a family we’re really enjoying our time in London, so there’s nowhere I’d rather be, it was a no-brainer to extend my stay.
“I want to make special memories here. We’ve got a great bunch of boys, who love playing for this Club; the coaching staff are great to work with on a daily basis - and we really feel we’re on an upward trajectory.
“There’s good things going to be happening here, I’m convinced of that - and I can’t wait to continue to be part of this exciting journey we’re on.”
Exiles Director of Rugby, Declan Kidney, believes Phipps’ decision to extend his stay at Irish is a clear signal of the Club’s intent, commenting: “Nick is an outstanding professional, the kind of player every coach dreams of having in their squad.
“His desire to continue to improve as a player, irrespective of what he’s achieved in a stellar career so far, speaks volumes of him.
“The fact he sees his long-term future here tells you we’re moving in the right direction, so we couldn’t be more delighted he’s committed his future to the Club.”
