Mike Catt signs new London Irish contract

Mike Catt has become the latest London Irish coach to commit his future to the Premiership club with a new deal.

Catt, who retired from playing earlier this month, has extended his contract as attack coach by three years.

The 38-year-old said: "Last season, I did not feel that I was able to give Toby Booth my full support due to my playing commitments.

"I will now relish the opportunity of helping London Irish to reach their full potential."

Catt is the latest coach to agree new deals with the Exiles, after head coach Toby Booth and defence coach Dave Ellis both recently extended their contracts.

Catt added: "One of my main reasons for retiring from playing was a desire to focus full-time on coaching, both for the continued development of the team and for my own aim of becoming the best coach I can be."
