London Irish centre Fergus Mulchrone has put pen to paper on a two-year extension with the Aviva Premiership club, it was announced on Thursday.
The outside centre, who is both England and Ireland qualified, joined the Exiles in 2013 from Rotherham and has gone on to play 28 times.
He formed a formidable partnership last season with Eamonn Sheridan in defence and attack and has this year started all five games at centre.
“I’m delighted to have signed with Irish for a further two years. The club brought me in from the Championship last summer and have shown real faith in me. There are plenty of good things happening at London Irish at the moment, especially on the field and I’m sure over the coming years we will continue to develop and improve as a side,” he told the Exiles‘ website.
London Irish director of rugby Brian Smith added: “Fergus has proved himself in the last year to be more than capable at performing at this level. He is a great character to have around the squad and has all the qualities and values we are looking for in a London Irish player. It has great to have him on-board for another two years.”
