Newport RFC are delighted to announce the signing of promising scrum half Tom Lucas. Tom has been playing his club rugby with Trebanos but is a player that head coach Craig Warlow is very aware of and one who Craig is delighted to see joining the Black & Ambers. 'I have watched Tom developing in his time at Swansea University. He has good basic skills and very fast feet to test the fringe defences. I am looking forward to helping him further develop here within our environment.'
Newport used several 9's on permit last season and have deliberately increased their options in that vital position for the new season. Tom was one who made a couple of appearances and impressed the coaching team, so will be keen to establish himself in the side. Welcome Tom and Good Luck!
