May will act as team captain with Corker taking on the club captaincy. May has been at the club for one term while Corker is now preparing for his eighth season at the Exiles.
London Welsh head coach Justin Burnell was pleased with how the duo worked in tandem last season and hopes for the same sort of impact this term. "Tom and Matt were great to work with last season," Burnell said. "They're two of the most professional and honourable people I have ever met.
"Matt has London Welsh running through his veins and Tom is an absolute role model both on and off the field. He led from the front last season, was a fantastic ambassador for the club and a pleasure to work with. In the Championship semi-finals and finals they both came into their own. They were born leaders for us."
