Former All Blacks scrum-half Piri Weepu doesn’t regret making the decision to Premiership strugglers London Welsh.

Seemingly destined for relegation after losing their first six matches of the Premiership season, Welsh are eight points clear of safety but the manner of their defeats has been a real concern,

Weepu though wouldn’t change his decision to move to England.

“Not at all. After the stroke, I was grateful for the opportunity and hopefully I can contribute a bit more before the end of the season,” Weepu told the BBC.

On-field issues aside, Weepu is enjoying life with the squad and has settled into life in Richmond near Welsh’s training base.

“It’s not that difficult (losing each week), we just need to tweak a few things, be better in a few areas we’ve been having issues with,” added Weepu.

“Other than that the boys are a good group of lads, the coaches are great staff and I can’t complain much. Apart from the losses, that’s the only thing letting us down, but other than that the spirit is still within the team. Everyone is still getting on. It’s just footie.

“Other than the results everything else is pretty sweet. Haven’t quite hit the cold yet, ask me at the end of the winter and I might have a different opinion.”
