LONDON Welsh forward Franck Montanella has signed a new two-year deal.

The loose head prop has been in outstanding form this season and the bedrock of the Exiles’ scrum, having played in 11 Premiership games since signing from Bourgoin in the summer.

The Frenchman was named in the Aviva Premiership select team for the first half of the season.

He had two years with Stade Francais before joining Bourgoin for the 2011-12 campaign and gained his only cap as a replacement against New Zealand at Eden Park in 2007.

He said: “I love the club. Right now I am happy and proud to be a Dragon!”
