London Irish can today confirm the signing of Argentina international Ignacio Ruiz.
The 21-year-old hooker joins up with the Exiles with immediate effect, adding to Irish’s already plentiful contingent of Argentine talent.  
Ruiz has played a part in Argentina’s recent strong form, coming off the bench in wins over Scotland in July as well as aiding in Los Pumas’ first win over England in 13 years in the Autumn Nations Series.
Declan Kidney, London Irish Director of Rugby, pronounced his delight in being able to tie down Ruiz’s services.
“I’d like to welcome Ignacio to the Club, myself and the coaching team believe he will be a great fit here as an Exile and will be made to feel welcome by his fellow countrymen and new teammates alike.
“His capabilities have been trusted on the international stage recently, his impressive showings at such a young age have made him a great prospect so we are delighted to have him here with us.”

Last season, Ruiz spent his time between Jaguares XV in the Super Liga Americana and Regatas Bella Vista in Argentina’s URBA Top 13 domestic league competition.
His fourth and most recent Argentina appearance came against Gregor Townsend’s side in November, and the front-row forward can’t wait to get started in Premiership Rugby.
“I’m really looking forward to joining Declan and the team in London, it is a big opportunity for me to join a Club like London Irish,” Ruiz commented.
“I have enjoyed playing Test rugby recently with my country, and I feel playing with London Irish will be another big step in the right direction for my career.”

Newcastle Falcons head coach Dave Walder said: “George has been offered an exciting playing opportunity over in France and we wish him all the best for his move.
“He has been a positive presence around our squad during his time here, and on behalf of the entire coaching team I’d like to thank him for his contribution.”
Merrick said: “I’ve loved my time in Newcastle with a great bunch of boys, and I’m looking forward now to this new challenge.”

Gloucester Rugby have been boosted by the return of the majority of their internationals for the Gallagher Premiership fixture against Harlequins at the Twickenham Stoop tomorrow evening (7:45pm KO).
Prop Val Rapava-Ruskin returns, after being away with England for the start of the Autumn Nations Series, and then illness.
Santiago Socino and Fraser Balmain complete the front-row.
Matias Alemanno featured in all of Argentina’s autumn games, he joins Freddie Clarke in the second-row.
Captain Lewis Ludlow and Ruan Ackermann start in the back-row with Ben Morgan at number 8.
Charlie Chapman starts at scrum-half with Santiago Carreras outside him.
Carreras has predominantly been used as a back-three player by head coach George Skivington, but has impressed at fly-half for Los Pumas this year.
Billy Twelvetrees is partnered with the returning Chris Harris in the centres.
Young Jake Morris keeps his spot on the left wing after his brace against Bristol in the Premiership Cup. Louis Rees-Zammit returns on the opposite wing, with Lloyd Evans dropping from fly-half to full back.
Six of the eight substitutes are Gloucester Rugby Academy graduates.
Jack Singleton and Stephen Varney return from their international sides and Jake Polledri is set to make his first appearance in the Gallagher Premiership after nearly two years due to injury.
Harry Elrington, Ciaran Knight, Cam Jordan, Jack Reeves and George Barton completed the team.
