Leicester Tigers have signed promising loosehead Tom Bristow from London Welsh.

Bristow played 21 times for the Exiles last season, and twice against the Tigers and he made a big impression.

Leicester boss Richard Cockerill said: "Tom is a young up-and-coming prop and he joins a very good bunch of promising young front rows at the club, including Fraser Balmain, Ryan Bower and Academy prospects Riccardo Brugnara, Tiziano Pasquali and Harry Rudkin.

Environment

"This is a good environment for Tom and the other young guys to learn their trade alongside senior props Marcos Ayerza, Boris Stankovich, Logovi'i Mulipola, Dan Cole and Jerome Schuster."

Bristow said: "I enjoyed my experience with London Welsh in the Aviva Premiership last season but I'm happy to be here now and delighted to have the opportunity with Leicester Tigers.

"I'm looking forward to settling in during the pre-season and being part of the Tigers squad."
