London Welsh have brought in Brumbies back-row Lachlan McCaffrey.
McCaffrey, who played for Australia at U20 level, has run out for the Western Force and the Waratahs in the past and faced the British & Irish Lions when they were in Perth for their warm-up game prior to the 2013 Test series. McCaffrey was born in Liverpool which will come as a welcome boost for London Welsh as they aim to hit the required number of English qualified players in their matchday 23.
London Welsh head coach Justin Burnell said: "Lachlan caught our attention at the Club 10s in Singapore when he was part of the Brumbies squad. I had the opportunity to meet him first hand and have a look at him play, and he really impressed me.
"He's EQP and that's very important, but he's also got an excellent and proven pedigree in Super 15 rugby. He's a typical ball playing Australian forward - he's got a brilliant skill set. It's another massive statement by London Welsh in our bid to compete in the Aviva Premiership next season."
