London Irish add two more following Gordon Reid signing

Georgian international back row Lasha Lomidze and Melbourne Rebels scrum-half Ben Meehan are the latest acquisitions to London Irish’s squad ahead of the 2017/18 season.

They follow in the footsteps of Scotland international Gordon Reid, who agreed on a deal with Exiles earlier in the day.


Lomidze, 24, who can play at either blindside flanker or No. 8, has played 25 times for Georgia including appearances at the 2015 World Cup where eventual winners New Zealand were their opponents in Pool C.

Meanwhile, 24-year-old Meehan began his professional career with NRL side Melbourne Storm before switching codes in 2013 when he signed for Queensland Reds’ Academy.

“London Irish is a world class set-up with state of the art facilities,” said Meehan.

“The infrastructure is very much in place for the club to progress to the next level and I’m really looking forward to showing what I can do.

“Irish have some very talented scrum-halves at the club and I’m eager to provide stiff competition for a place in the starting XV.”
