San Diego Legion signed Luke Green for the remainder of the 2023 Major League Rugby season in a loan agreement with the London Irish. The 22-year-old tighthead prop is 6’2″ and 265 lbs. and will be returning to London before the 2023-24 season.
Luke, who is from the United Kingdom, played his club rugby at London Irish Amateurs before joining the London Irish Academy when he was 15 years old. He has represented England at both the under-18 and under-20 levels, playing in two Under 20 Six Nations campaigns where he played in all five fixtures in the 2021 tournament. Luke also played with the Middlesex team at the county level.
He made his Irish debut in an away win in the Challenge Cup against Agen in 2020.
Alongside five others, he was promoted to the first team set-up from the Senior Academy upon the conclusion of the 2021/22 season.
In his final season as a Senior Academy player, Green came off the bench four times, three in the pool stages of Irish’s run to the Premiership Rugby Cup final.
