Curtis Rona has become the latest London Irish star to commit his future to the Club.
Rona, who made history by becoming the first try-scorer at our new home at the Brentford Community Stadium earlier this season, has penned a long-term contract extension with the Club.
The Australian centre has made quite an impact in his two years with the Club, scoring nine tries in his 45 appearances to date – but he feels the best is yet to come!
“I’m really stoked to be here for another few years” he said.
“I’ve really enjoyed my first couple of years here and I feel this is a great place to really kick on in my career.
“I feel we’re growing as a team all the time. We’ve got a really nice blend of star players, as well as emerging, up-and-coming players, which – combined with the great staff we have here, led by Declan Kidney – we believe can take us to the next level.”
Director of Rugby, Declan Kidney, welcomed the news of Rona’s contract extension, commenting: “Curtis has enjoyed a really impressive couple of years with us since joining the Club and – as is the case with many of the boys in this group – we feel there’s still huge scope for development in his game.
“His performances are going from strength to strength, and we’re excited about seeing his career continue to elevate in the right direction over the duration of his new contract.”
