London Irish prop Max Lahiff has been linked with a move to Super Rugby side the Melbourne Rebels for next season.

Lahiff is Australian-qualified and has played a prominent role for Irish this season in the Aviva Premiership with fellow loosehead prop Alex Corbisiero sidelined through injury.

Originally seen as long-term replacement for Corbisiero, Lahiff will now link up with either the Rebels or possibly the Queensland Reds.

Irish appear to have already filled one of their loosehead prop spots with the recruitment of Jonny Harris from Leicester Tigers according to getreading.co.uk, with winger Alex Lewington also joining from the Tigers.
