Kingsley Jones: Will assist London Welsh on a short-term basis
Former Sale director of rugby Kingsley Jones has agreed a short-term deal to join the London Welsh coaching staff.
The 43-year-old will assist head coach Lyn Jones until the end of October before returning to his role with Russia ahead of Canada and the USA in November.
Jones, who spent seven years at Sale, joined the Russian set-up in February 2011 before being appointed as head coach in December.
Also joining the Exiles ahead of their Aviva Premiership debut will be Paulica Ion, Kirill Kulemin and Tyson Keates.
London Irish prop Ion has signed on a season-long loan, while lock Kulemin makes the switch from Castres. Scrum-half Keates is a free agent after Aironi folded.
