Bath have confirmed confirm that academy hooker Tom Woolstencroft will be going on a short-term loan to London Irish.

Woolstencroft, a key figure in England’s capture of the Junior World Championship title in New Zealand this year, is answering a hooker crisis at the Madejski Stadium.

He will feature on bench for the Exiles on Sunday as they face Gloucester in the Premiership.

The move reverses the trend of players leaving Irish for The Rec over the past few seasons, with Jonathan Joseph, Anthony Watson, Matt Garvey and David Sisi all having made the move west.
