Centre Guy Armitage has committed to London Irish for the next two seasons.

Centre Guy Armitage has committed to London Irish for the next two seasons.

Guy left the club at the end of last season to join his brothers, Steffon and Delon, at French giants Toulon. He re-signed for London Irish earlier this season and has been a regular feature in the Irish midfield ever since.

Guy is an imposing figure on the rugby field and his size and strength has seen him as a threat in both attack and defence. He has played 12 times for Irish this season to add to his total of 21 appearances.

London Irish Director of Rugby Brian Smith said: “Guy Armitage is fast becoming one of the most dynamic power centres in the country.

“He’s a genuine Premiership player with the ability to go on and play for England like his two older brothers. Guy has forced his way into the starting team this season and if he keeps performing may well be considered for England’s summer tour of Argentina.”

Armitage said: “I have really enjoyed my rugby since I returned to London Irish from Toulon. I have come through the ranks with a number of these players and enjoy playing with them week in week out. I look forward to pushing on as a player and with the club over the next few seasons.”
