Phibbs joined the Exiles from Leicester Tigers as cover for the injured Tomas O'Leary in December and the Aviva Premiership club have decided to extend his stay at the Madejski Stadium.

"Since Pat joined us at Christmas we've won six from eight games and he's been a major factor in our improved form in 2013," Irish director of rugby Brian Smith said.
