London Irish sign Canada international Jebb Sinclair
Wednesday 27 July 2011
London Irish have announced the signing of Canada international Jebb Sinclair on a one-year contract.
The back-row forward will link up with Irish after Canada's World Cup campaign in New Zealand.
Sinclair, 25, has been playing for Canadian side Atlantic Rock and he was arguably his country's outstanding player during the Churchill Cup competition earlier this summer when Canada lost to England Saxons in the final.
Irish head coach Toby Booth said: "I saw a lot of Jebb during the recent Churchill Cup, and I was impressed.
"His workrate around the park was of a high standard and allowed others around him to shine, and that is what you need from a forward in the Premiership.
"He offers another lineout option and he is a strong ball-carrier, which will further strengthen us for this season."
