Dave Williams re-signs for Skolars

10th October 2012

London Skolars have begun their preparations for the 2013 Championship One campaign by re-signing prop Dave Williams. Williams, the former Harlequins RL front rower captained the side last season when Skolars just missed out on the play offs and was outstanding.

Skolars head coach Joe Mbu is delighted the 6ft 7ins prop will be on board. “It’s a great boost to the 2013 campaign for us,” he said. “He’s going to give us that strength in depth that we’ve lacked in the past.”

“He was a very important player for us. He’s consistent, takes the ball up well and makes the tackles. I believe his work rate goes unnoticed. The one game he didn’t play you could clearly see there was a big hole where he usually is.”

Williams, 25, said: “I’m really happy to have signed so we can carry on what we started last year. I had a really good time, it’s good to be playing week in week out . Working with Joe and everyone was really good.”

Championship One will have a whole new look next season with nine teams, three of which, Hemel Stags, Oxford and Gloucester All Golds will be new to the competition.

Williams added:”It will be interesting next year, with the three new teams coming in, seeing how they adapt to this level and also how the Welsh teams kick on. I think if we can keep most of the team we had last year together we should be right up there with a good chance of winning the thing. That’s why I’ve signed again, that’s what I think we can do.”
