RUGBY: London Welsh sign Argentina prop Pablo Henn

2:51pm Wednesday 9th July 2014

London Welsh have continued their rebuilding for life in the Aviva Premiership by signing Argentina loosehead prop Pablo Henn.

The 31-year-old won the most recent of his nine caps for his country against England in June 2013 and joins from French side Limoges.

Henn made his international debut against Chile in 2004 and in 2012 helped the Pumas to a 23-20 victory over France in Cordoba.

Welsh head coach Justin Burnell said: “Pablo really impressed against England last summer, he’s made over 100 appearances in the Top 14 in France and he’s just an out-an-out natural scrummager. We’ve had brilliant feedback on him."
