London Irish make double swoop

London Irish complete the signings of youngsters Scott Steele and Conor Gilsenan ahead of next season.

London Irish have confirmed the signings of youngsters Scott Steele and Conor Gilsenan for next season.

Scottish scrum-half Steele, 20, joins the club from Leicester Tigers, while 21-year-old Irish forward Gilsenan arrives from Leinster.

"Both Scott and Conor are really promising players. Scott is a talented scrum-half with a terrific skill set and Conor is a back-rower who plays with enormous intensity," Irish director of rugby Brian Smith told the club's official website.

"Both guys are quality players and good professionals and will add plenty of depth to our squad next season."

Steele and Gilsenan are the latest signings for Irish following the arrival of Dan Leo from Perpignan on Tuesday.
