RUGBY UNION: Scott relishes new Welsh deal
NICK Scott believes he can improve further after signing a new one-year contract with London Welsh.
The 22-year-old wing has agreed a deal to stay at the Aviva Premiership club until the end of the 2013-14 season.
Scott has been a consistent performer for the Exiles this season, memorably scoring interception tries in their victories over Exeter and Bath at Oxford’s Kassam Stadium.
And, having intially joined Welsh on loan from Bath, where he came through their academy, last February, Scott is delighted with his and the team’s progress.
“I’m very happy to have signed a contract extension with London Welsh,” said Scott.
“It’s a club that has been very good to me, showing faith and giving me an opportunity to play in the Aviva Premiership.
“I have been at the club just under a year and have thoroughly enjoyed my time here.
“I feel my game has improved working with Lyn Jones and the other coaching staff, and I’m confident it will continue to do so under their guidance.
“I’m looking forward to the challenge of consolidating London Welsh’s Premiership status with a great bunch of teammates.”
Scott’s four tries this season come after he bagged seven in ten matches to fire Welsh to promotion from the Championship last year.
He signed a permanent contract with the Exiles last summer.
Head coach Lyn Jones said: “We’re very pleased to extend Nick’s stay at London Welsh.
“He’s taken his opportunity since his arrival at the club and I hope that he can sustain his growth and improvement, and that he enjoys his time at London Welsh.”
