London Irish have bolstered their front-row options with the loan signing of John Ryan from Munster.
The 23-year-old, who can play on both sides of the scrum, has agreed to join the Exiles on a short-term deal.
Ryan has played five times for Munster and will compete with the likes of Alex Corbisiero, Halani Aulika, Cai Griffiths and Leo Halavatau for a starting role.
The Exiles have been keen to increase their options up front after experienced props Clarke Dermody and Faan Rautenbach left in the summer while Paulica Ion joined London Welsh on a season-long deal.
