Richie Williams comments, “All 3 players fit into our long term vision at the club and are fantastic role models. Jake has featured in every match day squad this season apart from 1 game. He is a dynamic carrier and has developed his defensive qualities over the past 2 seasons. He is one of our most consistent performers and has a real eye for the try line. I am excited about working with him again next season.”
“Ben continues to progress his game and has learned some valuable lessons this season. His experiences with the German national team have benefitted his confidence and his technical awareness and I am looking forward to seeing him continue his excellent progress over the next 2 seasons.”
“Joey has been a quality addition to our squad. He has really bought into the team’s philosophy and vision and his growth has been really prominent. He has huge potential to develop into an even more exciting full back and we will continue to do our best to support him on his journey. His attitude on and off the field has been exemplary.”
Joey responded, “I am very happy to be re-signing at Cambridge for the next 2 seasons. I’ve really enjoyed getting to know the management team, coaches, players, sponsors and supporters and look forward to working with them all next season.”
Jake added, “I’m excited to be involved with Cambridge next season. The style of rugby that we want to play suits my strengths. There is no other club quite like it and I feel honoured to be a part of the squad. Over the past 6 months, we have started to iron out some of the kinks in our armour so I am confident we are on the right track."
