London Irish have announced a new two-year contract for their prolific goalkicking full-back Tom Homer.

The academy product, 22, was the top points scored in the Aviva Premiership last season with 278, earning him the golden boot award.

London Irish director of rugby Brian Smith told the club's website that Homer has an international future: "Tom is a world-class footballer and a future England player.

"He has a big-match temperament, an incredible boot and in my view is one of the most complete players in the Aviva Premiership.

"More important than all this is the fact that he's an outstanding character and a future leader at this club. You'll be hearing a lot more about Tommy Homer - he's destined for great things with London Irish and England."

Homer added: "I have enjoyed my time at London Irish since joining the club back in 2008. It is a great environment to train in and I love playing at Madejski Stadium. There are definitely good times ahead."

Meanwhile Irish have signed Nottingham scrum-half Finlay Barnham on a short-term loan deal.
