London Irish wing Topsy Ojo has been signed a three-year contract extension with the Exiles.

Ojo, who was capped by England on the 2008 tour of New Zealand, has committed his future at Irish until 2017.

After joining the London Irish academy in July 2003, he made his first team debut against London Wasps in October 2005.

The 28-year-old, who is currently in his testimonial year with Irish, is the club's record try scorer with 65 tries.

"It's always an honour to wear the London Irish shirt and I'm looking forward to pushing on over the next three years with this group of players."

Fittingly, he is set to make his milestone 200th first team appearance this weekend against the club he made his debut against - Aviva Premiership opponents Wasps.

Welcoming his new deal, Ojo told the club's official website: "I joined London Irish straight from school and the club have been brilliant to me over the last 10 years.

Honour

"It's always an honour to wear the London Irish shirt and I'm looking forward to pushing on over the next three years with this group of players.

"The support I have received over the years has been amazing and I'm also looking forward to achieving many more milestones with the club."

Irish rugby director Brian Smith added: "Topsy has been an outstanding servant for this club over the last decade.

"He is a committed senior player who gives you 100% whenever he takes the field.

"He has made a great start to the season and continues to be one of the top back three players in the Aviva Premiership.

"He's a role model for all our aspiring outside backs."
