London Irish forward Jebb Sinclair has committed his immediate future to the Premiership club, signing a two-year contract extension.

The Canadian international, who has appeared in the last two Rugby World Cups for his country, signed for the Exiles in 2011 and has since gone on to make 78 appearances for the club, scoring four tries.

Standing 6'5" and weighing 115kgs, Sinclair adds a huge physical presence to the London Irish pack and his ability to play at both lock and flanker makes him an asset to Tom Coventry's squad.

The 29-year-old has 42 international caps for his country and was a key squad member of last year's World Cup squad.

"Jebb has been a good servant of this club for a number of years now and his versatility in being able to play at both lock and flanker makes him an important part of our group," said London Irish Head of Rugby Operations, Glenn Delaney.

"He was very quick to return to London Irish following the World Cup, which speaks volumes about his passion and commitment to our organisation. We look forward to working with Jebb over the next few seasons."

Sinclair commented saying: "I'm extremely happy to have signed a new deal with the club. We haven't started this season the way we wanted to, but the coaches and players are working relentlessly on the training field to ensure we rectify team performances. Plans are in place to enhance this club's progress over the coming seasons and I'm excited to be a part of it."
