Date published: July 29 2020

London Irish have confirmed that academy graduate Tom Homer has returned to the club that he started his career with after leaving Bath.

Homer, who has spent the last five years with the West Countrymen, is set to add to his existing 113 appearances for the Exiles.

The full-back, who scored two tries on his debut for Irish back in 2008, returns to Sunbury after 70 outings for Bath in the Premiership.

The former England U20 international is an accomplished goal-kicker and is also comfortable on the wing.

“We are very happy to see Tom returning to London Irish and I am sure the supporters will be pleased to see him back” said Declan Kidney, Irish’s director of rugby. “He is an experienced Premiership player and has a lot to offer our squad.”

Homer added: “I am delighted to get the chance to come back to where it all started and to put the green jersey on again.”

“Irish have been performing very well this season and hopefully I can chip in where needed! It will be great to see some familiar faces around the club.”
