London Irish: Luke Green loaned out to San Diego Legion

London Irish Academy graduate Luke Green has joined Major League Rugby’s San Diego Legion on loan with immediate effect.

The prop links up with former Exile Blair Cowan in the playing squad and will be coached by another former Exile in Alex Corbisiero, San Diego’s Scrum Coach.

So far in their season, San Diego has picked up four wins and one loss from an opening five fixtures in the MLR.

Luke will return to Hazelwood before the start of the 2023/24 campaign.

“We know Luke will be in good hands with Blair and Alex already over in San Diego and look forward to seeing the developments he makes from his time in America,” said Declan Kidney, Director of Rugby.

“Like Ed Scragg with Sydney University, Luke will experience valuable game time and it will only benefit him and London Irish in the future.”

“It’s a great opportunity for me to measure myself in a new environment,” said Green.

“Not many people get to test themselves abroad so early in their careers, so I’m excited to pick up some new experiences that will help me to develop as a player for when I return to London Irish.”

London Irish's next game will be against Saracens on April 21.
