London Irish have bolstered their second-row options for next season with the signing of Sebastian de Chaves from Leicester Tigers on a two-year deal.

The Exiles have also announced the capture of Northampton prop Danny Hobbs-Awoyemi, Saracens hooker David Porecki, Bath flanker Max Northcote-Green and Worcester centre Andy Symons.

Porecki played against London Irish in the first Premiership game to be played overseas earlier this month.

“Andy [Symons] is a very talented centre, who has proven his worth to Worcester during his three seasons,” said London Irish’s head of operations Glenn Delaney.

“He gives us strength in depth in our backline, and we are looking forward to having him at the club.”
