Williams looking forward to working with Tuilagi brothers

Fred Tuilagi with London Scottish rugby team

London Scottish Director of Rugby Matt Williams is looking forward to working with new forward duo Fred and Brian Tuilagi next season

The pair, nephews of England and British & Irish Lions centre Manu Tuilagi, will link up with the club for the 2020/21 campaign. 

And Williams, who will lead a coaching set-up that includes former Scotland hooker Stevie Scott, said: “I’m beyond excited to work with Fred and Brian.”

Williams also gave London Scottish fans an idea of what they’ll be getting at the Richmond Athletic Ground. 

“They play slightly differently in style, but will massively complement each other and still carry the physicality you’d expect from a Tuilagi in defence and with ball in hand,” he added. 

“With the added spice of the boys finally getting to play in the same team I can’t wait to see them drive each other on to produce excellence, whilst wearing the Tartan. 

“They will bring a real physical threat to our pack.”
