Ignacio Ruiz is an international hooker for Argentina signed by London Irish.

The 21-year old was a key player in his country's victory over England in the Autumn Nations Series.

Declan Kidney, Exiles director for rugby, said that he believes he will make a great team here.

“His abilities have been trusted on international stage recently, and his impressive showings at such an early age have made him great prospect, so it is a pleasure to have him.”

Ruiz also played a role in Argentina's victories against Scotland in July.

Declan and the London Irish team are something I look forward to. He said that it was a great opportunity to join a club such as London Irish.

“I've enjoyed playing Test rugby with my nation, and I think playing with London Irish will help me move in the right direction.”
