Guy Armitage

Guy Armitage has signed a new two-year deal at Premiership club London Irish.

Centre Armitage left the club at the end of last season to join his brothers Steffon and Delon at Frencg giants Toulon.

But the 21-year-old, who is 6ft 5ins tall and weighs 18st, rejoined the Exiles earlier this season on loan and has made 12 appearances so far.

"I have really enjoyed my rugby since I returned to London Irish from Toulon," Armitage commented.

Director of rugby Brian Smith hailed him as "one of the most dynamic power centres in the country".

Smith added: "He's a genuine Premiership player with the ability to go on and play for England like his two older brothers.

"Guy has forced his way into the starting team this season and, if he keeps performing, may well be considered for England's summer tour of Argentina."
