England hooker David Paice has signed a new three-year deal which will keep him at the Exiles until the 2016/17 season.
Paice joined the London Irish Academy in July 2003 and went on to become an integral part of the club's U19 side that won the National Cup that season.
In the last 10 years the tenacious front row operator has established himself as one of the best hookers in England and he is delighted to extend his stint with the Premiership campaigners.
"It's great to have the deal done so I can now concentrate on London Irish and the season ahead," he said.
"The club has been great to me over the last 10 years and I had no hesitation in extending the deal."
London Irish Director of Rugby Brian Smith praised Paice's decision to stay on at the club.
"David has been an outstanding servant to this club over the last decade and we are delighted that he will be here for the next three seasons," he said.
"He is one of many London Irish players that have represented England in recent times and he deserves to push on for further International honours.
"David has followed Ian Humphreys and George Skivington in signing long term deals. All three are experienced leaders in this squad and it is great to know we can build a squad around them."
