LAUNCESTON Rugby Club have announced that props Greg Thomas and Charlie Short plus versatile back Ollie Bebbington have all signed on ahead of the upcoming Regional One South West campaign.

Thomas, who was at the club for five years pre-COVID, returns after a couple of seasons at league rivals Devonport Services, while 21-year-old Short, who was in the academy at Exeter Chiefs, has finished university at Hartpury and is back in the area.

That is also the case for the versatile Bebbington who will add a new dynamic to the backline.

He has completed his studies in Cardiff and will look to kick on having been involved towards the end of the season at both second team and first level.

The club also announced over the weekend that back Cam Fogden is back from travelling as reported in the Post back in June.
