London Irish have bolstered their back row options for next season with the signing of Blair Cowan from Worcester Warriors on a three-year deal.

The powerful back row forward has made 20 appearances, scoring seven tries, for the Warriors since joining from Cornish Pirates where he made 79 appearances and scored 26 tries.

The New Zealand-born player has EQP status through residency. London Irish director of rugby Brian Smith is delighted that Blair has penned a three-year deal.

“Blair Cowan is in great form at present and he's a player we've been tracking for some time,” said Smith. “Blair is a great fit for us, he can play all three back row positions and he's a try-scorer. There are a lot of tough players in this league but not a lot tougher than this guy.”

Cowan said: “I’m looking forward to moving down South and joining London Irish. There are a lot of great players at the club and a lot of potential to match. I would like to thank Worcester Warriors and wish them all the best for the future.”
