London Welsh further strengthened thier front row for the Premiership this week with the signing of Argentina loosehead prop Pablo Henn.

The 31-year-old won the most recent of his nine caps for Argentina against England in June 2013, and will add some serious weight to the exiles' pack after switching from French side Limoges.

Henn has a wealth of Top 14 and European rugby from spells with Stade Francais, Montauban and Brive and Welsh head coach Justin Burnell has  high hopes for his new man.

“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," he said.

"We’ve had brilliant feedback on him.

“The set-piece is hugely important in the Premiership and the signing of Pablo is another massive statement by the club.

"He’s an Argentina international, he did a fantastic job against England last summer and he will further strengthen our front row quality.”
