Ofisa Treviranus London Irish AVP 2013

New deal: Ofisa Treviranus

London Irish have announced that Samoa international Ofisa Treviranus and Academy star Gerard Ellis have extended their contracts at the club.

Treviranus has made 43 appearances for the club since arriving in 2011 and follows David Paice, Shane Geraghty, Topsy Ojo, Darren Allinson, Halani Aulika, Jon Fisher and Tom Fowlie, who recently re-signed at the Madejski Stadium.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my two and a half years at London Irish and I'm excited to be here for another three seasons," said Treviranus.

"Clearly there are many developments happening off the field at our Club and the positive steps we are making from a rugby point of view made staying at London Irish an easy decision."

Ellis meanwhile is a London Irish Academy player with a bright future. He has the ability to play in various positions and has excelled in both the back row and at hooker this season.

"I have been unfortunate with injuries during my two years at London Irish, but the club has always stuck by me. I want to push on next season and work hard to break into the senior squad. There is plenty of positivity around the club and it is an exciting place to be," he said after inking a one-year extension.

London Irish Director of Rugby, Brian Smith said: "It is great news for the club that both these players will be here next season. Ofisa has been outstanding for London Irish since he joined back in 2012 and Gerard is a hugely exciting prospect who we believe can be an International player in the years ahead."
