GREENE King IPA Championship leaders London Irish return to Madejski Stadium as they aim to preserve their advantage at the top against Richmond on Sunday (3pm).

Exiles sit five points clear of Ealing Trailfinders and have bolstered their squad since the 38-5 victory at Hartpury College by signing Fijian international duo Albert Tuisue and Alivereti Veitokani.

Versatile forward Tuisue, who stands 6ft 2in and weighs 17st 9lbs, can play in either the second or back row, while 25-year-olf fly-half Veitokani was also part of the Fijian squad which stunned France during the Autumn internationals.

London Irish Director of Rugby Declan Kidney is delighted to have picked up the duo as Exiles aim to bounce back to the Gallagher Premiership at the first time of asking, stating: "Albert’s career has taken an upward turn in the past two years. He has international experience but is still young, and we believe he has the potential to become a good player for us.

“Alivereti is a player with talent and potential. He will find the Championship more structured compared to what he is used to in Australia and Fiji, so it might take him time to adjust to rugby in England.

“But we’ve been impressed by what we’ve seen from both players and believe that they have the ability to succeed as part of our squad.”

Meanwhile, young wing Ollie Hassell-Collins has been named in England Under 20s' 32-man Elite Player Squad ahead of the Six Nations.

The 6ft 4in speedster, who weighs nearly 16st, made an immediate impression with a try on his Irish senior debut against Cornish Pirates back in November.
