Ofisa Treviranus has signed a new deal at London Irish after impressing the club during his short-term contract over the last few months.

The Samoan back-rower will remain with the club until at least 2014.

The 27-year-old joined the Exiles in November, with a view to him remaining for a further two seasons.

And the Exiles have chosen to take up that option after Treviranus made a strong initial impression upon his arrival at the Madejski Stadium.

He then returned to his homeland for the birth of his son, but came on as a replacement in Sunday's Aviva Premiership defeat to Leicester.

"I have really been enjoying my rugby and my time at the club so far," he said.

"I like the style of play and feel that I am making fantastic strides in my development as a player. It's great to be back."

London Irish head coach, Toby Booth added: "I have been impressed with the way Ofisa has fitted into the squad and with his performances.

"He brings a hugely physical approach every time he takes the field and is a natural ball winner on the floor."
