London Welsh have unveiled eight new signings as the club prepares for the business end of the Championship season.
Joining the Exiles are USA Eagles flanker John Quill, Munster prop Paddy Ryan and versatile former London Wasps Academy back Liam O'Neill, while there's a return to the club for scrum half Tyson Keats.
Arriving on dual registrations are Worcester Warriors and England U19 wing Josh Watkins and Bath second row Will Spencer.
In addition, Wasps Number 8 Rory Pitman and Leicester Tigers prop Tom Bristow have both joined the Oxford-based club, with the pair featuring for the Exiles in their 39-6 win over Ealing Trailfinders last Saturday. Pitman joins Welsh on loan, while former Exiles' loosehead prop Bristow is dual-registered.
London Welsh head coach Justin Burnell said: "The potential within this group of players is remarkable. There's pace, skill, size and experience.
"What these signings demonstrate to me once again is that London Welsh will leave no stone unturned to further strengthen its squad in the pursuit of success.”
