Exiles add Wales ace to ranks
Controversial Welsh back Gavin Henson will be back in the Aviva Premiership next season after signing for London Welsh.
The Exiles were initially excluded from the top flight after winning promotion from the Championship due to ground issues, however an appeal was successful which means they will replace Newcastle Falcons after all. Lyn Jones' men will be up against the might of Leicester, Northampton and Saracens next term but their ranks have been boosted by the mercurial yet unpredictable Henson who has been known more for his reality TV appearances of late. Jones confirmed: "Gavin has a great talent but over the past three or four seasons he has not realised his full potential for a number of reasons that are well documented. "I sincerely hope and believe he can now draw a line under that period and move forward again with London Welsh." Henson has experience of club rugby in England following a short spell with Saracens during the 2010-11 season. London Welsh kick off their Aviva Premiership season at home to Leicester on September 1.
