Versatile forward: Jebb Sinclair

Canada international Jebb Sinclair has signed a one year contract extension with London Irish.

Sinclair joined the Exiles in October 2011 from Canadian side Atlantic Rock, on the back of a superb Churchill Cup and Rugby World Cup.

The versatile forward, who is capable of playing in the second row, blindside flanker and number eight, has made seven appearances for the club this season playing the majority of his rugby at number eight.

Sinclair has missed a part of the season with a thumb injury but is now back and available for selection and is delighted that his contract has been extended.

"Unfortunately my playing time has been limited this season due to international commitments and injury," he told London Irish's official website.

However, there is a great togetherness around the squad and I enjoy playing and training with the guys. I'm really looking forward to next season and a chance to get a full pre-season under my belt," Sinclair added.

London Irish head coach Toby Booth regards Sinclair as an asset for the club.

"Jebb has bought plenty of physicality to our pack and his work rate around the park is of a high standard," he said.

"He offers another line-out option and is a strong ball carrier."
