Newly-promoted London Welsh have announced the signing of Bedford forward Ben Cooper.

The tighthead prop becomes the club's 25th new signing since returning to the Premiership at the end of last season via the Championship play-offs.

London Welsh coach Justin Burnell said: "Ben is 25-years-old, he's a big man and this is a great opportunity for him. Hopefully, we can bring the best out of him.

"Ben played against us three times last season and showed huge potential.

"He started against us at Goldington Road – our first Championship loss of the season – and he certainly caught my eye that day. They disrupted us at the set-piece."
