Armitage free to join Toulon after Exiles release

London Irish have agreed to an early release for Steffon Armitage which allows him to join Toulon with immediate effect.

Armitage has agreed to a three-year deal with the French Top 14 club and will replace the outgoing George Smith.

Armitage’s contract with London Irish was until 2012 and earlier in the season the Exiles had insisted that they would not release him unless they had found a suitable replacement.

London Irish have been in talks with England flanker Hendre Fourie although Leeds have lodged a complaint for an “illegal approach” by the Exiles.
