Exiles clinch Hoskins deal

London Irish have landed talented prop Oliver Hoskins on a two-year deal from Australian Super Rugby side Western Force.

Hoskins, 23, who has represented Australia at under-20 level, has progressed through the ranks to establish himself as one of the most exciting front rowers in Australian rugby.
 
Bursting onto the Super Rugby scene in 2014, the Perth-born big hitter has made 26 appearances for the Force, including 15 outings in his debut campaign.
 
"I’m really excited at the prospect of joining London Irish and looking at the players that have joined, it is clear the Club is genuinely building for the future" said Hoskins.
 
"The facilities that the Club has at its disposal and the squad that has been assembled shows the vision and ambition London Irish has to succeed at the top level.
 
"I look forward to joining the Club in the summer," he added.
 
London Irish Head of Rugby Operations, Glenn Delaney said: "We have already recruited a number of exciting prospects to the squad for next season and Oliver is another player we can add to that list.
 
"He is a dynamic ball carrier with a good set-piece game and we feel his attributes will suit Northern Hemisphere rugby."
