London Irish is pleased to announce the signing of fly half Adrian Jarvis on a one year contract.

The former England Saxon has joined up with the rest of the London Irish squad for pre-season training after he enjoyed a short spell at Leeds towards the back-end of last season after playing for Bristol in the Championship.

Adrian is an accurate kicker out of hand and at goal and has developed great distributional skills during his career. He has played in the Premiership for Harlequins, Bristol and Leeds.

Commenting on his decision to play for London Irish Adrian said: “I am excited at the challenge of joining London Irish. I feel that some of my best rugby is still ahead of me and I am sure London Irish is the best place to bring it out. There are some talented and exciting players in the Exiles backline and I look forward to playing and training alongside them all.”

London Irish head coach Toby Booth said: “During a World Cup year when there are key players missing it is important to have players around the squad with experience and that is something Adrian will bring to us. We have talented youngsters who will learn a great deal from him. His kicking out of hand and at goal is outstanding and it is very good to know that we will have that in our locker for this season.”
