World cup winner Catt comitts to London Irish

Mike Catt has committed his future to London Irish Rugby Club by signing a three year contract extension as Attack Coach.

The thirty eight year old Catt , who called time on a distinguished 17 year playing career earlier this month, has penned a new deal with the club that will take him up to the end of the 2012/13 season.

The World Cup winner, who joined the Exiles in 2004 and went on to make 95 appearances, opted to hang up his boots after London Irish’s match against Northampton Saints to focus solely on his role as Attack Coach.

Speaking about the deal, Catt said: “I am delighted to be staying at the club for at least another three years.

“One of my main reasons for retiring from playing was a desire to focus full-time on coaching, both for the continued development of the team and for my own aim of becoming the best coach I can be.

“At times last season, I did not feel that I was able to give Toby Booth my full support due to my playing commitments, and I now relish the opportunity of helping London Irish reach its full potential.”

Catt is the latest coach to agree new deals with the Exiles, after Head Coach Toby Booth and Defence Coach Dave Ellis both recently extended their contracts.
