RUGBY UNION: London Welsh duo agree new deals

First published in Sport

London Welsh duo Hudson Tonga’uiha and Greg Bateman have signed new deals with the Aviva Premiership club.

Centre Tonga’uiha, who has 24 caps for Tonga and made nine Premiership appearances for the Exiles in their debut season in the top flight, joined prop Bateman in extending his contract with the Oxford-based side.

Welsh head coach Lyn Jones said: “I’m absolutely delighted that Hudson and Greg have committed to London Welsh.

“Hudson has really stepped up to the mark this year and Greg has grasped his opportunity with both hands.

“These two re-signings signify our ambitions and long-term objectives.”

Meanwhile, Welsh – who face London Wasps at the Kassam Stadium tomorrow – have appointed former Wales international Tony Copsey as their new chief executive officer.

He will take up his new role on January 1.
