Welsh complete Henn deal

London Welsh have continued their rebuilding process following their return to the Aviva Premiership with the signing of Argentina loosehead prop Pablo Henn.

The 31-year-old has been capped nine times by the Pumas, with his last international appearance coming against England in June last year.

Henn arrives at the Kassam Stadium having previously played in France for Stade Francais, Montauban and Brive.

London 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.

"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 in 2013 and he will further strengthen our front row quality."
