London Irish have signed Wallabies prop Sekope Kepu for ahead of next season’s Premiership campaign.
The 33-year-old is the Wallabies most-capped prop, having made 103 appearances since his debut in 2008.
Kepu made his name with the Waratahs in Super Rugby and also had a stint at French Top 14 side Bordeaux in 2015-16, where he played 14 games.
“I’m excited at the opportunity to join London Irish as they return back to the Premiership,” Kepu said.
“I was very impressed by the facilities at Hazelwood and the new stadium taking shape in West London, so as a player, it is an exciting time to be joining the club.”
His signing follows the impending arrival of Ireland and Leinster back-row Sean O’Brien as they look to make an impression next season.
