Exeter have signed former London Irish prop Will Goodrick-Clarke.

The 28-year-old spent last season with Championship winners Ealing following the demise of Irish a year ago.

He is the second Ealing prop to move to Sandy Park in the past week after Jimmy Roots joined the Premiership side.

He also featured for England against the Barbarians in the summer of 2022.

Exeter have not disclosed the length of deal the loosehead has signed at Sandy Park.

"We knew some looseheads would be moving on and we wanted to replace them, as well as add to what we have here by signing a quality player who we knew had Premiership experience," Exeter boss Rob Baxter told the club website., external

“Will fills that mould fantastically for us. He’s an established player who was playing very well for London Irish at the time of their demise.

“We watched a lot of him playing in the Championship this season and saw he was playing well, so we think he’ll be a fantastic addition to our squad.

"We know he’s desperate to get back into playing in the Premiership to push on and try to be successful and win trophies."
