London Irish sign Nimmo as second row cover

Aviva Premiership Rugby club London Irish have announced that second row forward Ian Nimmo has signed a loan agreement with the club.

Ian joins as cover for George Skivington and Kieran Low and has been named on the bench for tomorrow’s Aviva Premiership match against Exeter Chiefs.

Ian has recently played for the Newport Gwent Dragons and has previously spent time with the Cornish Pirates in the Championship.

The 28 year-old is an imposing figure at 6’7″ and close to 19 stone. He will provide plenty of physicality in defence and attack.

Ian is a former Scotland under 21 international and has been on the books of Leicester Tigers.

London Irish Director of Rugby, Brian Smith said: “We are really looking forward to having Ian onboard. He will bring plenty of size and experience to our pack in the short term absence of George and Kieran.”
