London Irish have brought in France's defence coach Dave Ellis to bolster their resources.

Ellis has signed a one-year contract with an option to extend after leaving French club Brive. He has also had spells coaching Castres and Gloucester.

He replaces Barrie-Jon Mather, who returned to rugby league coaching earlier in the summer.

Ellis will continue to perform his duties with France, a position he has held for the past 10 years.
