Jamie Hagan: London Irish prop joins Leinster on loan

Jamie Hagan
Hagan, who began his career with Leinster, has only played once for London Irish this season

London Irish tighthead prop Jamie Hagan has rejoined Pro12 side Leinster on a three-month loan.

Hagan had two spells with Leinster either side of two years with Connacht before joining London Irish in 2013.

The 27-year-old made his international debut on Ireland's tour of North America in 2013.

"Jamie has had limited game time so this season and will now get a chance with Leinster over the coming months," said Exiles chief Brian Smith.

Hagan will provide cover for Ed Byrne, who suffered a knee injury in Leinster's Pro12 game against Edinburgh.

"The injury forced our hand but we are delighted to be able to call on a player the calibre of Jamie, who is a full Irish international but crucially knows the set up here, knows the players and what is expected of him at Leinster," head coach Matt O'Connor told the Leinster website.external-link
