London Welsh head coach Justion Burnell reckons the signature of former Harlequins centre Trim Molenaar is a key part of his side's top flight survival plan.

The 33-year-old former Northampton Saint impressed in 19 appearances for the Stoop outfit last term, having moved to the former Premiership champions from Gloucester last October as injury cover.

Burnell said: "This is another important piece of our recruitment plans for next season.

"Tim is another player with a lot of Premiership experience that we had targeted and he will provide a physicality that will complement our other centres and give us various combinations in the midfield.”
