Exiles snap up Flutey and Willis
New London Irish signing Ben Willis
Willis is an Ireland 'A' international
London Irish have signed fly-half Riki Flutey and scrum-half Ben Willis on two-year deals ahead of next season.

Flutey is an experienced player and has been selected for the New Zealand Maori team, who will face the British and Irish Lions on their June tour.

The 25-year-old joins Irish from Super 12 side Wellington Hurricanes and will arrive in the UK after the Maori tour.

Willis, a former Harlequins player, returns to the Guinness Premiership after a spell in France with Beziers.

"These latest signings maintain the club's tradition of recruiting from the best talent available in both hemispheres," said London Irish director of rugby Brian Smith.

"Both players will offer us more options in these crucial positions in the team."
