London Welsh have continued their signing spree with the announcement of former England international lock forward Dean Schofield's arrival.

The 35-year-old joins from Worcester after two seasons at Sixways and becomes the 19th new signing since clinching promotion to the top flight.

The experienced 6ft 6in 122kg lock arrived at Worcester from French giants Toulon in 2012.

"Dean is a big man with a wealth of experience from a technical and tactical aspect of the game, which is very important for us, and his leadership qualities speaks for itself," said London Welsh head coach Justin Burnell about the signing.
