London Welsh have re-signed scrumhalf Rob Lewis on loan from Cardiff Blues for the remainder of the season.

London Welsh have re-signed scrumhalf Rob Lewis on loan from Cardiff Blues for the remainder of the season.

Lewis, 25, re-joins the Exiles having previously made 80 appearances for the club, including scoring 11 tries, over three seasons at Old Deer Park.

London Welsh head coach Lyn Jones said: “Rob played a huge part in the club’s championship success and we welcome him back to London Welsh with open arms.”

On re-joining London Welsh, Lewis said: “It’s good to be back, I’ve missed the place and I’ve missed the boys. It’s always been a club close to my heart.

“I’ve been following their results closely this season, and it’s nice to be back to be a part of it once again. I’m not surprised by the start the club’s made to the Premiership, there’s always been a good core of boys here.”

Lewis’ previous spell with the club culminated in playing a leading role in Welsh’s Championship-winning season, before leaving to join the Blues.

A graduate of the Newport Gwent Dragons Academy, Lewis gained representative honours for Wales at Under-18, Under-19 and Under-20 levels, and was the top try-scorer in the Wales Under-19 side that won the Grand Slam in 2006.

He made his debut for the Dragons against Munster at Musgrave Park in November 2007, and went on to make 17 appearances for the senior side. He also played for Ebbw Vale.

Called in to the Wales Sevens squad in February 2008 for the IRB Sevens tournaments in Wellington and San Diego, he and brother James became the first twins to represent Wales at senior level.

The scrumhalf’s return to London Welsh will once again see him team up with James, who joined the Exiles in November 2010.
