London Irish have brought in second row Alex Toolis on a short-term loan deal from Edinburgh as they cope with a number of injuries.

Nic Rouse is currently out of action with a shoulder injury, while Sean Cox has a hamstring problem.

It’s not the first time Toolis, who was born in Australia, has joined the club. The second row had a short spell with the club last season, and featured in the LV=Cup against Northampton.

“We have had a few injuries in the second row so Alex has come in to add a bit more depth to that position,” said director of rugby Brian Smith.

“He did a good job for us last season when he played in the LV=Cup and I have no doubt he will do well again when he gets his chance.”
