We are pleased to announce the first of our new signings for the forthcoming season at Cambridge RFC.
Both players will add real quality and provide strength in depth for both the front row, second row and back row respectively.
The first player is young prop Zianna Alexis who joins us from Ealing Trailfinders. He brings with him a wealth of national league experience along with a number of Saracens A appearances. Head Coach Richie Williams has worked with Zianna previously at England Counties level and has monitored his excellent development over the past few seasons.
The second player to sign is Belgium XV’s and 7’s International player, Gillian Benoy. Williams again has worked with Benoy during his time in Belgium and is excited to see him develop even further at Cambridge.
“Gillian has been playing senior rugby from the age of 17 and is an excellent talent. He is comfortable across the back row and has played a lot of rugby in the 2nd row. He has already gained a high number of senior international caps and he will bring a strong athletic edge to our pack.”
Williams commented that he is extremely excited to work with both players again and sees them both as ‘cultural’ fits to the current squad and club.
