LONDON Welsh have announced eight new signings, including the return of scrum half Tyson Keats.
Welsh have bolstered their squad to 47 players as their push for promotion from the Greene King IPA Championship gathers pace.
Keats, whose botched registration led to Welsh being deducted five points in last season’s Aviva Premiership campaign, is back as is prop Tom Brsistow, who is dual registered with parent club Leicester.
Wasps No 8 Rory Pitman, who like Bristow featured against Ealing last week, joins on loan.
Arriving on dual registrations are Worcester Warriors and England Under 19 wing Josh Watkins and Bath second row Will Spencer.
USA Eagles flanker John Quill, Munster prop Paddy Ryan and versatile Wasps back Liam O’Neill, who has been at Henley this season, have also signed.
