London Welsh has further strengthened its front row for the challenge of the Aviva Premiership with the signing of Argentina loosehead prop Pablo Henn.

Henn, 31, won the most recent of his nine caps for Argentina against England in June 2013, and will add some serious weight to the Exiles' push to be competitive in next season's Premiership after joining Welsh from French side Limoges.

As well as international pedigree, Henn also brings a wealth of Top 14 and European experience to the Exiles from his time at Stade Francais, Montauban and Brive.

He made his international debut against Chile in 2004 and in 2012 helped the Pumas to a 23-20 victory over France in Cordoba.

"Pablo really impressed against England last summer, he's made over 100 appearances in the Top 14 in France and he's just an out-an-out natural scrummager. We've had brilliant feedback on him," said London Welsh head coach Justin Burnell.

"The set-piece is hugely important in the Premiership and the signing of Pablo is another massive statement by the club.

"He's an Argentina international, he did a fantastic job against England in 2013 and he will further strengthen our front row quality."
