London Irish have brought in Dave Lyons on a short-term deal as injury cover in their depleted pack.

The former Worcester and London Scottish lock will be a welcome addition in the Exiles’ second row, and director of rugby Brian Smith expects him to make an instant impact.

“Dave is a physical, ball carrying second rower who has amassed plenty of experience from his time playing for Clubs in both the Premiership and Championship,” said Smith.

“There is plenty of rugby to play in the next couple of months so Dave will get an opportunity and I’m sure he’ll do well.”
