    London - London Irish prop Max Lahiff has agreed to join Melbourne Rebels at the end of the season.

    "Max is a terrific player and a young man with great values," Irish rugby director Brian Smith said.

    "He will do well at the Rebels and may go on to play for the Wallabies.

    "He has played hard for us all season and he will always be welcome back at the club as a player."
