Seb Jewell says it is sad to see relegated London Welsh suffer so miserably in the Aviva Premiership, but is backing the club to bounce back next season.

The Exiles, who face Wasps at Oxford's Kassam Stadium on Sunday, have failed to win a single game this year and have not tasted a competitive victory for ten months.

Welsh only lost five Greene King IPA Championship matches in 2013-14, but have gone on to lose all 18 in English rugby’s top tier.

It is a far cry from their relegation from the same division in 2013, when they recorded five wins and picked up 23 points.

Jewell, who has been with the club for four years and is out of contract in the summer, is desperate for the Exiles’ fortunes to turn around.

The 27-year-old said: “It is sad to see the club like this.

“It is irrelevant whether you are here for one week or four years, you don’t want to be in a team that is losing.”

The full back added: “We are here for a reason, because we are good enough to make it to this stage.

“Winning is something we are used to, but London Welsh is a resilient club and will do pretty well next year no matter what.”
