London Irish sign Scarlets winger Andrew Fenby

Aviva Premiership Rugby Club London Irish have secured the services of Scarlets winger, Andrew Fenby on a three year deal.

The 27-year-old joined the Scarlets in May 2009 following a spell with Newcastle Falcons. He has made 75 appearances for the Welsh region, scoring 27 tries.

Standing 6ft and weighing close to 100kgs, the Newcastle University graduate is an imposing figure on the rugby field with his power in attack and defence a prominent element in his game.

London Irish Director of Rugby, Brian Smith said: “Andrew is a player I have been very impressed with over the last few years. He is a physical and abrasive presence who rarely fails to get over the advantage line.”

“He’s the second highest try scorer in the RaboDirect, so he knows his way to the try line. He will add a further option to our back three for the coming seasons.

Commenting on his decision to sign for the Exiles, Fenby said: “I would firstly like to thank the Scarlets for everything they have done during my time at the club and I wish them well for the future. “

“I am looking forward to moving to London Irish and testing myself in the Aviva Premiership. It is a great opportunity for me and I look forward to arriving at the club in the summer.”
