Former All Blacks second-row Bryn Evans has signed a new two-year deal with London Irish.
Evans, who won two caps for the Kiwis, joined the Exiles in September 2011 and has since made 35 appearances for the Aviva Premiership side. He has established himself as a key component in their pack and he is pleased to have re-signed.
"I am so proud to be a part of this club, and I am looking forward to extending my time here by another two seasons," Evans said. "There is a very strong group of young players emerging with a huge amount of potential and I can really see the squad moving forward in the right direction with these guys around."
London Irish director of rugby Brian Smith added: "Bryn Evans is a very important player for the club. He runs our lineout and is a key member of the leadership group.
"On top of that Bryn brings a lot of rugby intelligence to the team and he's a very popular and respected member of the group. It's fantastic he's committed to the London Irish cause. He is one of the true believers".
